Xew York. Dec. 20.— Two women were 
killed and another woman and a man 
were so severely Injured that they will 
probably die a.s the result of a fire at the 
residence of C. H. Raymond, at West 
End avenue and Fifty-third street. 

Mrs. I'nderwood, a sister of Mrs. Ray- 
mond, leaped from a second floor win- 
dow. Her head struck the sidewalk and 
death wa.s instantaneous. William 
Doerr, in trying to rescue Mrs. irnder- 
wood, sustained a fracture of the skull 
which probably will result in death. 
Mrs. C. H. Raymond followed Mr.s. T*n> 
derwood out of the window and -.vat 
picked up uncon.scious. Mr. Raymond 
was carried from the house unconscious 
from smoke. 

After the flames were extingoiished 
the l>ody of Harriet Fee was found on 
the third tloor of the house. She had 
been overcome by the smoke. 

A superb collection of pictures and 
tapestries owned by .Mr. Raymond was 
entirely destroyed. 

The fire was discovered by someone 
passing in the street. When the fire- 
men arrived they could not jret into 
the building:, as the llames burst out in 
such a volume that the men were driven 
back. Mr. and Mrs. Raymond appeared 
at windows of the third story front and 
Mrs. T'mJerwood at a second story w iri» 
dow. The firemen ran a ladder to the 
upper stories and William Doerr, a rail- 
way conductor, volunteered to go up. 
Mrs. Raymond and Mrs. Underwood 
could be seen climbing out of the win- 
dov.s, and the firemen and the crowd 
bessed them to go back. Doerr was 
half way up tlie ladder when Mrs. I'n- 
derwood jumped from the window, 
striking Doerr full in the breast and 
carrying him with her to the street. 
The firemen bore away Mrs. l^nderwoou 
while others rescued Doerr. Mrs. I'n- 
derwcod was dead and Doerr was ciymtf. 
Thfir skulls had been crushed. Mrs. 
l^nderwood had come from Ohio t«t 
spend the holidays with her sister. Mrs. 

Meantime Mrs. Raymond, who could 
not be restrained by her, had 
jumped out of the window. It Is feared 
that she is fatally hurt. Two firemen 
who climbed a ladder to the third stor> 
rescued Mr. Raymond just as he wat' 
overcome by the smoke. 

Ferguson, the butler, escaped by the 
rear. His face was badly lacerated by 
falling while making his escape. 

After the fire had l)een subdued th? 
body of Harriet Fee was found. All 
the clothing had been burned off and 
the corpse was black from the fiames. 
The loss was l.'O.OOO. 

Gen. Wilson Will Stay In Army Unless 
Kicked Out. 

Macon, Ga., Dec. 20.— Gen. James H. 
Wil.son, commanding the First army 
corps in camp here, and who made ref- 
erence to Canada under the stars and 
stripe* in a speech here yesterday, de- 
nies that he will resign, and says the 
reports which appeared in the papers 11 
that efiect are entirely without founda- 
tiun. His aide, Lieut. Stewart, gavc- 
(iut the following today: 

"The statement that Gen. Wilson in- 
tends t? resign is entirely without foun 
dation. When he left the army before 
it was fo'- the interval of pea<e which 
miyht elapse between the date of his 
lesignatl'tn and the beginnin.i? of tnt 
next war.' When he came into the 
army tliis time it was to remain fo 
1( ng as his services were needed, and 
he has no expectation of quitting until 
the government signifies that it has no 
longer any use for his service.s. He 
was not an applicant for the chief com- 
mander in Cuba. He would have felt 
honored had the assignment been given 
nim. He has no grievance whatever 
against the administration."

Famous Swiss Savant Arrives 
In America to Demon- 
strate Its Value. 

New York, I>ec. 20.— The Herald says: 
Raoul Pictet, the famous Swiss savant, 
chevalier of the Legion of Honor, dis- 
coverer of the liquefaction of oxygen and 
member of more than forty scientific so- 
cieties in France and Germany, has come 
to America to demonstrate to physicians 
and scientists here what he is convinced 
is a cure for diseases of tlie lungs, stom- 
ach, the circulation anrt the kidney.s. 

•La Krigotheraple," the name of his 
new discovery, may perhaps be roughly 
tianslated In English as "the freezing 
cure." The necessary machinery consists 
of a well of metal lined with thick furs, 
in which the patient descends, the depth 
being about five feet. This well Is sur- 
rounded by an outer shell, while the cav- 
ity between the outer and Inner walls is 
tilled with a combination of sulphurous 
and carbonic acids known to the scien- 
tific world as "llciulde pictet," after its 
discoverer. This gas is kept in a liquid 
state at lli) dogrces below zero and Is 
continually forced into the cavity by 

M. Pictet says the patient surrounded 
b.v the lurs and the ley liquid has no Im- 
pression of cold whatever, and in fact 
his temperature rises after three seconds 
treatment, increasing from one-half to 
one degree in live minutes. A period of 
treatment ranging from five to fifteen 
minutes is always sufficient for the time 
being, the number of needful repetitions 
varying In each individual case. 

M. Pictet says he himself, after fifteen 
years of Illness, was cured after eight 
descents Into "the well." The i)rince of 
Scrvla. he says, was absolutely cured by 
six descents after twenty years of con- 
tinuous ill health. 


Report That American Capital Had 
Been Offered to Rus«ia. 

New York, Dec. 20.— William Ivins, 
formerly city chamberlain, today af- 
firmed the truth of the St. Petersburg 
dispatch to the effect that he had com- 
municated to the Russian minister of 
finance, through H. H. Dupierre, the 
United States minister at St. Peters- 
barg, a proposition to make, a large 
loan to Russia. Mr. Ivins, however, 
declined to give the names of the finan- 
ciers who had authorized him to make 
the proposition, and said further that 
he could not talk on the subject just

Aitkin Likely to Be Furnished 

With a Free Delivery 




Washington, Dec. 20.— (Special to The 
lierald.) — Repfesentative Morris yes- 
terday presented a petition for the 
establishment of rural free delivery at 
Aitkin. The matter will be investigat- 
ed, and If it is practicable the service 
v>iil be established. It was sugggesied 
that points in the fairly well settled 
portions of the Sixth district be se- 
lected for an experiment in this service 
and the department will investigate 
and establish routes wherever possible.

A statement transmitted to the houf.e 
today shows that Collector of Customs 
Olund received $129 for his services

July 15, lis;, to June 30 of this year.

Ex-Senator Washburn's name is re-

It is admitted even by ft lends of the 
McCleary currency bill that no extra 
session of congress will be called. A 
canvass of house Republicans just 
completed shows not over ID per cent 
in favor of an extra session, and the 
president will not. It is thought, go 
contrary to the wishes of the mem- 
bers. It is certain the McCleary bill 
could not pass if an extra session was 
called. Many Western and Northwest- 
ern members are opposed to the fea- 
tures of the bill. The defeat of the in- 
ternational banking liill Is evidence the 
McCleary bill is in disfavor. The Re- 
publicans have such a slim majority in 
the next congress they cannot afford to 
Icse many votes.

.\nother large sale of Minnesota pine 
lands Is In prospect, and efforts are be- 
Ijig made to offer about ten townships 
on Cass lake reservation In February. 
There is strong opposition by some of 
the Indians, and a delegation Is ex- 
pected here soon to protest. But Com- 
missioner Hermann takes the stand 
that the lands are surveyed and esti- 
mated, and that the sooner the timber 
is disposed of the better. He is con- 
sidering all statements and listening to 
various interests before coming to any 
conclusion. Congressman Eddy said 
yesterday that if there was any law 
V. hereby the government might reserve 
a section of land for a townslte, and 
then sell lots an Immense fund would 
accrue to the Indians. The townslte as 
at present located Is on land claimed 
by the state, for school lan(Js, and the 
title will not be settled pAibably for 
years, or until after the supreme court 
has passed on It.

Columbia, S. C, Dec. 20.— The presi- 
dential train arrived at Columbia, 
where the first secession convention 
was held, at 10:10 p. m. last night, and 
remained three-ciuarters of an hour. A 
considerable crowd was at the station. 
The Second Tennessee band was pres- 
ent, and as the train rolled in played an 
inspiring aii. There were prolonged 
calls for the president, who was intro- 
duced by Mayor Lipscomb.- The presi- 
dent spoke as follows: 

"My Fellow Citizens: This stop was 
not a part of our itinerary, but it is as 
agreeable as unexpected that I am per- 
mitted to meet and greet my ft-llow 
citizens of the city of Columbia in the 
state of South Carolina. 1 am glad to 
meet the citizens of the state and also 
soldiers of the Ignited States encamped 
in your city. A government like ours 
rests upon the intelligence, morality 
and patriotism of the people. The ma- 
jority of the people always have been 
on the side of right action and good 
government, and in this year, 1898, one 
of the most glorious, there have been 
such manifestations of good feeling, of 
good will, of loyalty upon the part of 
all the people of all the sections of the 
country as to have been unprecedented 
in our history. Each has rivalled the 
other in devotion to the old flag. It is 
a hapiiy omen for our counuy in view 
of the vast problems that await us in 
the near future. And let us here, in 
South Carolina, and in every other 
state of the ITnion. devote ourselves to 
the preservation of this great political 
structure, resolved that the general 
government of the people, by the peo- 
ple and for the people shall not perish 
from the earth. It cannot as long as 
it continues deeply rooted in the aiTec- 
tions of the citizens. I thank you all, 
and it gives me great pleasure to in- 
troduce to you tonight two or three of 
the soldiers conspicuous in the battle 
of Santiago, and the first whom 1 shall 
present will be Maj. Gen. Shafler. who 
was the commander in chief in that 

Gen. Shaffer and Gen. Wheeler also 
spoke. The other speakers were Sec- 
retary Gage, who referred to the need 
cf a good treasury: Postmaster Gen- 
eral Smith, who referred in fine style 
to the new Icjyalty and patiiotism, and 
Secretary Alger, who referred to the 
many evidences that this was one coun- 
try with a common cause. As the 
train pulled out the president and Gen. 
Wheeler grasped the hands of hun-

Except In a Theater or In a Billiard 

Milwaukee, Dec. 20.— A Journal spe- 
cial from Kenosha, Wis., says: Million- 
aire Edward Bain, president of the Bain 
Wagon company, whose death was an- 
nounced yesterday, was familiarly 
known as the "man who never slept," 
and it Is doubtful if another case like 
his exists. It Is virtually a fact that 
for the last sixteen years he had not 
slept an hour in his bed. Constant de- 
votion to business was the cause of 
his sleeplessness, he having been known 
to remain at his factory up to sixteen 
years ago as late as 4 o'clock in the 
morning, and when he would seek rest 
he found it Impossible to sleep. At that 
time he practically relieved himself of 
business cares. 

During the last ten years he was to 
be found every evening at a theater or 
in a billiard hall, these being the only 
places where he could get a short nap, 
the music and the click of the billiard 
balls seemins to sootUe him to sleep. 

Would Urge Self Government 

Upon the People of New 


Washington. Doc. 20.— Mr. Teller in the 
ci'uise of his remarks in the senate toda.v, 
said that the purc'hase of territory from 
Mexico after the Mexican war was par- 
allel with the present purchase from 
Spain. In this case Spain was prostrate 
at oiar feet and we said we want some of 
your territory and we will pa\ for ii. 
We held it first by conquest and then by 

No matter what was the provocation ot 
the war, that was the case, it was a great 
and grand acijulsition, he said, second 
only to the Louisiana purchase, which 
n.ade the Mexican purchase possible. 
This was what we proposed to do with 
Sp.iin. We had conciueied her and now 
prnposed to purchase some of h-.-r terri- 
tory .md pay her $20,000,000, a mere bag- 

Mr. Teller said he would ask the peo- 
ple of the Philippines what they wanted 
it: the w.'.y of government and give It to 
thorn. The sooner the people governcni 
themselves the better. He believd the 
people of Luzon capabl of self-govern- 
nicnt. In ariswer to a oue.stion of Mr. 
Tillman, he said he would not permit 
revolutions like those which occurred in 
South America. 

Mr. Teller read a letter from Admiral 
Dewey saying that the people of the 
Philippines can be easily governed. He 
also read a portion «>f a letter from an 
army officer to the same effect. In Ad- 
miral Dewey s letter he said that he had 
not the slightest difficulty in dealing with 
the Filipinos. 

Mr. Teller said that be would have the 
people given all the encouragement pos- 
sible and if they developed qualities ot 
statehood he would grant them that. 

At the conclusion of Mr. Tellers spef>ch 
Mr. KIkins called up the bill relating" to

White Miners Are Holding Out Solidly 
Tor the Scale.

of twenty negroes arrived in Pana to- 
day. They were held up by soldiers 
and relieved of arms before being per- 
mitted to proceed to the coal mint,

negroes in Pana. The mines are oper- 
ated about half time. The white union 
miners remain out solidly for the stat-^ 
scale. They received $1600 today from 
the national union. Two companies of 
state miiltla remain here, and Col. Wells 
has a provost guard in every section of 
the city, fearing trouble may break out 
at any moment between the whites and 
blacks. The strike leaders claim the

On the Question of Changing 

Existing Credit Laws In 



Proposed Change That Will 

Be Sure to Arouse Bitter 


Chicaito. Dec. 20.— A Winona, Minn., 
special to the Tribune says: The peoplo 
of tho state of Minnnesota will witness, 
at the opening of the next session of 
the legislature, one of the most bitterly 
contested flshts that has ever taken 
place in the history of the state. The 
battle royal will be conducted between 
the merchant element i>f the state on 
the one side and the industrial tlas.-^ts 
on the other, and will be a fight to the 
death on the question of changing the 

existing credit laws. 

A gigantic i)usiness men's movenienl 
has l<een set afoi>t in a very itulet man- 
ner, and despite the seere.\v that has 
governed the movements of the leadii:;.; 
spirits of the enterprise, it is kiioAii 
that an assoiiation has i)een formeil ex- 
tending from the territory adjacent tn 
Lake Superior on the north, through 
the Twin Cities and beyond Winona .>n 
the south, for the purpose of l>iingia:^ 
pressure to bear to pass the di-.^iied 

It is the purpose of the organization 
to repeal all existing laws governing; 
the relation of the small debtor and 
his creditor, the retail merchant. 
laws are to l>e replaced by measures 
which, while gratifying and no doubt o° 
great value to the retail l)usiness ele- 
ment, will! ar.ruse bitter opposition 
among working men, farmers, employes 
of all kinds and consumers in general. 
It is for this reason that such 
secrecy is l)eing observed. 

The organization whiih is undertak- 
ing this seemingly herculean task is 
the Minnesota Business Men's associa- 
tion, with headquartt-rs at St, Paul. At 
its head is P. O. Han.son. president of 
the rtetail <iro<ers and General Mer- 
chants" association of Minnesota, and 
vho is a grocer of Minneap ilis. J. 11. 
Tenvoorde. of St. Paul, is the se.^retary 
of the organization, and Is also the 
secretary of the Retail drocers' associ- 
ation of" that city. The treasurer is J. 
, S. Taylor, secretary of the Minneii>olis 
Jletail (rrocers' association. This or- 
ganization has a small army of agenti? 
at work throughout the state interest- 
ing retailers in the project, and seeu! - 
ing the co-operation of independent 
■business men's soeietles of all kind,s. 
The principal object desired is th • 
passage of a law that will reduce to the 
smalitst sum the value of prop- 
erty exempt from seizure for del)t, 
minimize the amount exempt from gar- 
nishee process, and make the wages of 
all minors available for seizure for 
debt contracted by either of the par- 
ents. That this measure is directed at 
the p.'orer I'lasses and consumers 
alone is shown l>y a statement in the 
prospectus, which specifically sets 
forth that its provisiiMis are not to 
apply as between creditors and mer- 
chants, when merchandise is bought 
for the purpose of being placed for sale 
in the mercantile business. 

For the organization of the busin-'ss

:Manilla, Dec, 20,— The Spanish 
steamer Brutus D., arrived here from 
Iloilvj with 345 native soldiers and seven 
priests on board. She reports thai 

fighting o.curred at Iloilo nightly, and 
that the merchants there are anxiously 
awaiting the arrival of Americans to 
relieve the situation. The streets of 
Iloilo are almost deserted. The Span- 
ish officials admit that it is impossible 
for them to maintain their position at 
Iloilo unless they are speedily rein- 
forced. They are surrounded by su- 
perior forces of insurgents, who are 
estimated to numl>er 25,000 men, 
Aisainst them the Spaniards have only 
li.-.UO rifles.

District Attorney Graham 

Files an Answer In the 

Supreme Court. 


He Also Gives His Opinion 

of the Stay of 


Philadelphia. Dec. 20.— District Attorney 
Graham yesterday filed in the prothono- 
tary's office of the supreme court the an- 
swer of the commonwealth to the peti- 
tion of I'nlted States Senator M. S. Quay, 
his son. Richard R. Quay, and former 
State Treasurer Haywood, in which the 
defendants asked the supreme court for 
a rule to show cause why a writ of cer- 
tiorari should not be lssue<l to take up the 
lecord of examination of the case in which 
the three defendants are charged with 
consiiiracy to misuse state funds on de- 
posit in the People's bank. True bills of 
indictment were returned by the grand 
jury against the defendants and their 
trial was tixed for Monday. Dec. 12. but 
on Dec. li> Justb'es Green and Williams 
of the supreme court granted the riile 
asked for by the defendants and fixed 
Jan. 7 ;is the time for hearing arguments. 

The district attorney sa>s that the 
statement that the defendants could not 
obtain a fair trial is "scandalous and un- 
truthful ami a ki'oss imputation ujion the 
twelve Judges of the Philadelphia courts." 
and he declares it to be untrue, as 
cliarRed in the i>etition. that the prosecu- 
tions were inspired by Judge Gay Gordon. 
as alleged. Continuing, the answer says: 

•'The evidence shows that public funds 
of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania 
tor years have been used by the consiilr- 
ators for their private and unlawful gain. 

"Interest has been allowed bv the Peo- 
ple's bank on the deposits of public money 
.old paid to the accused, hi some cases 
idaced in the individual deposit of the ac- 
cused in their bank account and checked 
out by them along with their own money.-, 
in the same account. In other instances 
cashier's checks and drafts have beta 
made payable to the accused for Certain 
sums of Interest on the public money and 
these documents, bearinjjr the endorse- 
ment of the aci-usetl. showing the receipt 
l)y them of the interest money paid, are in 
e.vistence and in possession of the com- 
mimwealth. The books show that hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars of public 
money deposited in the People's bank 
were set iii>art for the usi- of M. S. Qua> 
and used by him; and that he was charge<3 
no intervst thereon. The liooks show 
that hundreds of thousands of dolhu.- 
worth of stock were bought for M. S. 
(^uay with this money. That whenevei 
tie f.iiled to use his full allowance of pub- 
lic mom y thus set apart for him, interest 
was carefully calculated upon the bal- 
ance not used by him in the jnirchase of 
stocks and paiii to the stale treasurer. 
'I'hc district attorney could not havi 
tailed nor refused to iii-oi'ced upon this 
evidence an<l to bring the accused inti 
ci>urt to confess or explain this testimony 
This respondent acted without the slight- 
est element of malice, prejudice or feel- 
ing. The i)rosecution is absolutely undei 
the control of y»>ur correspondent and no 
other person. The averment that tliert 
is any conspiracy ti> j)roseciite these do 
fendants is false. Respondent respect- 
fully suggests that if it were true that 
some one inspired the prosecution, yet 11 
the prosecution itself Is just and well 
founded, this can in no wise be a defense 
for the accused. 

The answer says It is utterly unimpor- 
tant and impertinent whethe.- JudKre Gor- 
don, as private counsel for the pr»'siilent 
of the People's bank, had Cashier Hop- 
kins' private letters and that these letters 
were used for political or other purposes 
(which averment is denied) and consti- 
tutes no Kround for the order prayed foi 
in the defendant's petition. 

The district attorney declares that these 
proieedings were instituted beiort- Mr. 
djuay made the personal announcement of 
his candidacy to succeed himself in the 
rnited States senate. Why a legal pro- 
ceeding should be arrested upon the 
ground of a defendant's candidacy for of- 
tice. the district attorney is .at a loss to 
understand, and all alleKati<ms to thi^ 
effect, he says, are irrelevant and imma- 

The district attorney avers that in seek- 
ing trial for these cases he is simply do- 
In.i? his duty under his oath of office and 
that in so doing he is not prejudicing or 
intimidating the general assembly. The 
prosecution, he says, was based ut>on "In- 
crimin.ating evidence." a part of which 
was prwluced before the committing mag- 
istrate and before the grand jury, and the 
prosecution "has no other purpose than 
that of briiiKins to justice persons whom 
the respondent believes have persistently 
violated the laws of the commonwealth 
and used the public moneys of the state 
as though they were part of their own pri- 
vate property." 

In closing the answer, the district attor- 
ney says: "Resprmdent avers that appeals 
of the extraordinary nature of the one 
made In the j>etition in question where 
rules are Rranted accompanied with stay 
of pr<K-eedings that interrupt the repula'r 
and orderly progress of the administra- 
tion of justice In the lower courts are cal- 
culated to do Irreparable Injury and to 
make it Impossible t<i successfully prose- 
cute persons of wealth and power."

Case Against Michael Kollin^r Eor 
Alleged Wife Murder* ' 

Chicago, Dec. 20,— There werfe inter- 
esting developments today in the case 
of Michael RoIIinger, the big Austrian 
who is under arrest charged with mur- 
dering and privately cremating his 
wife. There war? another in the case. 
When RoIIinger was some time ago a 
cook in a restaurant it is said he be- 
came enamored with n waitress named 
Lena. This woman was afterward and 
until a few days previous to the tragedy 
employed in Rollinger's restaurant on 
Milwaukee avenue, and is now supposed 
to be in Michigan, The police are try- 
ing to locate her. It developed that two 
days before Mrs. RoUlngcr so myster- 
iously disappeared she told a friend that 
her husband had threatened to kill her 
unless she left him within ten days. It 
has also been discovered that before the 
fire RoIIinger left in a near-by saloon a 
valise containing an insurance policy 
on Mrs. Rollinger's life for $.500 and 
deeds for $8000 worth of property in 
Austria which belonged to her. The 
police comment on the similarity of the 
case to that of the Luetgert murder. 
They have arrived at the conclusion 
that RoIIinger murdered his wife in 
jrder to get possession of her property 
and marry the other woman. 


Wisconsin Supreme Court Decides 
the Famous Venture Case. 

Milwaukee. Dec 2i.».-S|)ecial Minster Ed- 
ward Kurtz has filed his report in tVe 
I'nlted States court In the celebrated 
lumber case know n as the"Wisconsin ven- 
ture case, ' ill which E, A. Shores brought 
suit against John Cantield, the million- 
aire of Manistee, Mich., and Klihu «J. 
Filer, who launched the project for his 
share t)f the profits. Shores received in 
addition to the advances made to him $1'), 
-.:*: all of his notes running to John 
Canfield, for more than jlW.oi.O are dis- 
charged and there is due him one-fourth 
of the proceeds of contracts valued up to 
date~"at %\ii<.':n. In addition to all this 
he receives a one-fourth interest in the 
lands in Northern A\'lsconsin belonging to 
the combination comprising thousands of 
acres of valuable pine forests. The cash 
has been turned over and now the at- 
torneys are ttghting over the major por- 
tion of it, two of them having retained 
JHKXI as their dues. 

All the parties interested are agreed up- 
on the report except as to the computa- 
tion of interest. In this respect the mas- 
ter says that he has experienced; a great 
deal of dllllculty in determining tlie mean- 
ing of the court as stated in the order of 
reference. If the attorneys f6r Mr. 
Shores can convince the court that the 
clerk's method as finally adopted by 
him is wrong and their views should pre- 
vail it will make a difference of about 
$3li.ta in Mr. Shores' favor, but this is 
the only question left open in the cele- 
brated case.

A heroic act on the part of a man 
named Peters, a traveling salesman 
from Chicago for the Baldwin Music 
house, called for cheers from the crowd 
watching the fire. When the fire start- 
ed Peters was standing In the crowd, 
and saw the Maloney and Ferguson 
girls appear at the second story win- 
dows. The gifis were panic stricken, 
ami were in momentary danger of go- 
ing down w ith the floor. Peters spraiu; 
tbr<jugli the door with his coat over bis 
head and, dashing t;:.-.;ugh tlv.' flame 
and smoke, n-ached the wind(jw ai 
whiih the girls appeared and, after 
talking with them, swung out from the 
ledge and drojjped. His example was 
followed by the two girls.

American Bankers So Decide 

Regarding the Proposed 

Russian Loan. 

New York. Dec. 20.— Information con- 
cerning the Russian government loan 
sought t;> be placed in this country vv:i.:s 
given out yesterday by J. & W. Sellg- 
man & Co. The firm's London repre- 
sentatives cabled to their house asking 
whether or not they could place $10,000.- 
(HiO 4 per cent Itussian year railway 
bonds, guaranteed by the Russian gov- 
ernment. The matter was discussed 
and decided In the negative, 

Isaac Seligman said today: "Russian 
government 4 per cents are selling in 
this market at l>etween 102 and 104. The 
Russian bonds are generally taken in 
this country in return for concessions 
l)y the Russian government. For in- 
stance, the insurance companies in this 
country probably own $5,000,000 to $7,- 
000,000 Russian bonds, which they have 
purchased and held in pursuance to 
terms of the Russian government per- 
mitting them to transact a life in,sur- 
ance business. 

"We made a careful canvass among 
l>ankeis in this city, and although we 
fi und some bankers prepared to take 
an interest in the projiosed loan, at the 
same lime we did not find sufficient in- 
terest taken by others, and so dropped 
the business. We do not think the 
present moment is opportune for sell- 
ing Russian bonds In this county. If 
the favorable balance cf trade con- 
tinues, however. It is not Improbable 
that within a year or two these bonds 
can be placed advantageously in our

The wheat market was affected today

within a narrow range. The news was 
bearish, but the seillns pressure was

Some Beari&h News Out No Great 
Selling Pressure. 

Chicago. Dec. 2o.— There was a very per- 
ceptible falling off today in the volume of 
trade In wh<:fat. the near approach of the 
holidays having eflect in this respect. 
The opening was easy and lower. Liver- 
pool was irregular but tended generally 
ciownward and N^orthwest receipts though 
not heavy compared with the recent 
heavy runs were yet large enough to 
cause some depression. Minneapolis and 
Uuluth reported 7s.". cars, compared with 
>»A last week and 2:^0 a year ago. Chicago 
receipts were 2l"."> cars, of contract grade. 
Outside markets were even weaker than 
Chicago. In spite of the bearish nature 
01 the news no very great selling pres- 
sure was put on the market and a little 
scattered covering by shorts and some 
buying against "puts' sutticed to advanc 
prices somewhat. The market became 
exceedingly dull as the session advanced, 
with prices keeping within a narrow 
range. May opened 'jc lower, at 6n4fe<'3C. 
It aiivanced slowly to tJV^c. and reacted 
to 67»ic. 

Corn was full.v as dull as wheat, but 
showed more lirmnes.a. Cables were high- 
er, but the wet weather west was the 
principal Influence. Bull traders increasei 
their long lines. Receipts were liberal, 72; 
cars. May opened a shade higher at 3.5% 
fi'ac and held at 35' ^c. 

Considerable trading was done In oits. 
though it was of a scattered nature. 
Opening firm with corn, the market easel 
off on a little Ikiuldallon by longs, but 
soon became tlrm again and heUl steady 
at A slight advance. Receipts were 3S1 
car.s. May opened unchan.gnd. at 2t>*4C, 
eased ofT to 2»)' .^^'Ti >i.c, and advanced to 

Provisions were dull and barel.v stead.v. 
Hog receipts were large and .vard prices 
were lower. Offerings were well taken 
care of and prices did not change much. 
Mav pork ofiened unchanged at $9.t>7, de- 
cHiied to $9.i'.3 and reacted to i&J,l. May 
lard opened 2'yi.c higher, at $5..'{2. and held 
at that price. May ribs opened a shade

Chicago. Dec. 20.— There was a fair 
amount of activity early, but later in the 
day as the market declined dullness i)ie- 
vailed and it is more than likely that 
ooerations for the next few days will be 
of a quiet character. Foreign markets 
were lower and late in the session there 
•*'ere reports of re-selllng of cargoes on 
account of Increased Russian offerings, 
but this we cannot confirm. The worlds 
visible showed an Increase of about 4.00O.- 
•Xto bus compared with last v-ear. Stocks 
at Russian ports outside of Odessa and 
Nicolaff are said to be small. Primarv 
reteii>ts continue on a large scale, but are 
offset by the heavy clearance.-j. We hiur 
of but a small amount of new business 
for export and no doubt it will be more or restricted until well along in the holi- 
days. 1 1 may be well on the expectetl dull 
markets to take on hedges for May and 

Corn— Clearances were quite heavy and 
there h.-is been a large amount of new 
business for direct export. Weather condi- 
tions prevailing through the West are still 
bad and receipts have run over the esti- 
mate, the grading is poor, a dull turn can 
be expected. This also applies to oats. 

Provision.s— Hogs were slow at yards 
with liberal receipts, there was .some sell- 
ing for packers while outsiders were the 
best buyers. While values mav sag con- 
sequent on the holidays, there "is nothing 
of ;• weak nature that we can see In the 
situation, any fair-sized decline in our 
opinion would result in good commission 
house bu.ving.

Iron and Steel Stocks Presented a 
Firm Front Today. 

New York. Dec. 20.— Opening prices of 
the leading shares showed slight changes 
either way on moderatt- declines. The ab- 
i^ence of a decided tone to the market 
was in sympathy with London where 
similar irregularities prevailed. Some of 
,the specialties were buoyant. National 
Bi.scuit rose 2, Chicago & Alton 1% and 
lennes.stt? Coal 1 point. The market hes- 
itated and traders were uncertain what 
course to pursue. An advance in grades 
of sugar caused a sharp rise in Sugar 
stocks and a resumption of support to 
Mi.ssouri Pacinc brought about general 
bu>ing which lifted prices to about last 
night s level. Arbitrage brokers took ad- 
vantage of the rise in prices to unload 
and tne effect of offerings was 
speedily shown in a de<jllne In the active 
internationals, particularlv Union Pacif- 
ic. This development dam'pened the bull- 
ish enthusiasm generally and on the sales 
to realize values gave way with Sugar 
and Tobacco most iiffected. The lion 
and steel stocks presented a lirm front, 
bales ol stocks to noon, 206,3t>7 shares. 
Bonds were quiet but decidedly linn. 


Don't Want the Wisconsin Central 
to Purchase Equipment. 

Milwaukee, Dec. 20.— Creditors of the 
Wisconsin Central lines have appealed 
to the L'nited States circuit court of ap- 
peals from the recent order of Judge 
Jenkins authorizing the receivers to 
make a new issue of receivers' certifi- 
cates, amounting to $1,000,000. and to 
be known as the equipment certitl .-ates. 
The appeal is taken by Mark T. Cox, of 
.Morristown. N. Y., but who is a niem- 
ber of the firm of Hob._-rt Wlnthrop & 
Co., of New Y'oik City. 

NotwithBtanding the appeal, con- 
tracts have been let for nearly an en- 
tirely new freight equipment, but a de- 
cision will likely be given before the 
delivery of the cars begina. 

Mr. Cox maintains the court erred in 
granting an order in so great an under- 
taking without taking proof or referring 
the matter to a master to inquire Into the 
necessity of purchasing new equipment 
and that the petition upon which tne or- 
der was granted was not sufficient to war- 
rant the order. 

Special Master In Chancery Carv, who 
has had charge of the litigation concern- 
ing the Northern Pacific claimants, who 
have m.'<.le claim against the lands east 
of ihe Mis.souri river, has Issued notices 
to creditors he will begin the hearings

Late advices from Washington indi- 
cate that there will be no extra session 
of the next congress to consider the 
question of currency legislation. Less 
than 10 per cent of the Republican mem- 
ber.s are said to favor an extra session. 
so that it is hardly likely the president 
will call one. The fact is that the Mc- 
Cleary bill, which It was at first pro- 
posed to rush through congress, cannot 
get the votes of many Republican con- 
gressmen. The prominence given this 
measure in the latter days of the No- 
vaml>er campaign and the exposure of 
its iniquitous features aroused a strong 
public sentiment against it, and man> 
Republican congressional candidates 
would have been defeated had thej* not 
asserted that the bill was not endorsed 
by the administration and had not ever 
been favoraldy reported to the house. 

The fact Is also noted that a decided 
change of opinion has taken place in 
regard to the most essential features of 
the proposed reform at the very center 
of the movement, as a result of the re- 
markable experiences of the past year 
with respect to the movements of gold. 
A year ago it was the predominant 
opinion in New York financial circles 
that at the earliest moment possible the 
government ought to take steps in the 
direction of retiring or paying off its 
legal tender notes, but this opinion is 
much less general there now, and it is 
said that many of the national bankers 
do not agree with the plan suggested 
by the Indianapolis currency commis- 
sion, being inclined to think that an 
agitation in favor of exclusive national 
bank franchises for the issuing of paper 
currency will in the long run do more 
harm to the national banking system 
than good. These bankers recognize the 
fact that the weight of public senti- 
ment is against giving the banks a 
monopoly of the paper money of the 
country, and consequently they are not 
urging such legislation. 

The Omaha Bee considers that the 
most noteworthy fact in the situation 
is the effect which has been produced 
favorable to the legal tender notes 
through the inflow of gold. There haa 
been imported during the past year, in 
transactions with other nations, over 
$100,000,000 in gold, and we are certain 
to import a large quantity in the near 
future. There has besides been a very 
considerable addition to our stock of 
gold from the production of our own 
country and Alaska. This increase In 
the supply of the yellow metal is said to 
be causing some inconvenience In the 
matter of taking care of it, and it actu- 
ally has to be forced into circulation. 
The New York clearing house, It is 
stated, would be very glad to exchange 
its gold for greenbacks if the treasury 
could be persuaded to do this. The situ- 


Makes the food more delicious and wholesome 


ation is such that the legal tenders are 
regarded as more desirable for com- 
mercial, banking and customs transac- 
tions than the gold itself. 

This condition has led many bankers 
to conclude that the legal tender notes 
till a most important and convenient 
place in our currency system, and are 
besides more economical than the use 
of gold would be. since the handling of 
niudi gold its;='lf entails ex;iensc. Thu.s 
financial men who used to regard the 
greenback as an element of i>ern now 
see in it none of that qtiality, Imt in- 
stead qualities that are of distinct ad- 
vantage in banking and commercial 
transactions. In fact, it is the opinion 
of some that if the ini>venieiit of gold 
to this country continues it will be 
found in the near future that green- 
1 acks are regarded as mtnv desirable- 
than gold and will be more carefully 
hoarded. Consequently the chief feature 
of the McCloary liill is row oppjs^d bj 
the same men who some time ago were 
demanding that class i>f legislation. 

ing bitterly of the cold. '"Don't you have

salesman who waited «>n him. "Why, 
certalidy. we h.ive cold weather In

have ze all four seasons in one day in 
France." And that is the kind of weather 
they have in Boston.

"Matthew SiaiUev ijuuy is not in such a

Sounding his usual platitudes in Soul'a 
Carolina this morning. President Mc- 
Kinley said we should be "resolved that 
general government of the people and 
for the people should not i^erish from 
the earth." It aipei^.rs that we have 
heard something like this before. It 
was one time spoken by a man who 
knew its meaning and meant what he 
said. Now it is repeated by a follower 
of dollar worshippers who would have 
it mean government of millions of peo- 
ple in the Philippines. Cuba and Porto 
Rio by a few military "people" in 
Washington — a government of might, 
of taxation without representation, 
and without the consent of the gov- 

President McKinley should first put 
into practice the theory of government 
hy the people for the people before he 
;.rates about resolving to preserve 
self-government and shouts the high- 
sounding question: "Who will haul 
down the fiag?" If his own promisis 
to Cuba and the promises of congress 
are fulfilled, the llag of the Fnited 
States will have to be hauled in 
that island, and it is a mind of fine dis- 
crimination that can see any material 
difference in haulir.g d<i\vn the flag there 
and in any other territory taken from 
Spain. Platitudes are all right in th(?ir 
place, but they do not change eternal 
truths nor fool people who know the 
value of and appreciate liberty and self- 
go vernnient.

The Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Republican 
recently published an editorial on "The 
i^roader Imperialism," which, judging 
from the sentiments therein expressed, 
is no imperialism at all. The Repub- 
lican says: 

"W'e hope that the Iowa delegation in 
congress will keep in mind that Amer- 
ican sentiment is in favor of educating 
the people of the various islands up to 
the point of governing themselves, 
rather than seeking to govern them 
from Washington. For the benefits 
rendered the United States has a right 
to expect and will receive benefits in 
return. The people of this country 
have no idea of ruling outlying dis- 
tricts arbitrarily, except as the people 
of such districts are unable to rule 
themselves. By carrying out such a 
policy as this, this country will bo 
enabled to keep up the policy or at 
least the theory upon which the war 
with Spain was originally based— hu- 
manity, education and Christianity. 
This policy does away with the argu- 
ment that we are seeking to treat other 
peoples, inferior peoples it may be, as 
we would not like to b'ireated in return. 
We will do away with nearly all the 
objections which are now made against 
expansion. We will bo fulfilling the 
high mission the thought of which is 
born of free institutions, and we will be 
in truth liberty enlightening the world." 

Commenting on the above the Des 
Moines News says: "The ideas as 
herein expressed do honor to the Re- 
publican, but they are the farthest re- 
moval from that jingo, the flag-must- 
never-come-down imperialism which 
glories in conquest and expansion. It 
is always safe to keep close to the 
Declaration of Independence, which is 
by no means a back number. That 
great state paper enunciated a truth 
that must for all time be the sub- 
stratum of all true government, name- 
ly; That governments derive their just 
powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned. If Mr. McKinley and congress 
shall take this view of the situation re- 
specting the territory won from Spain 
there can be little objection to such a 
policy. And if in addition to this pol- 
icy civil service rules are made to apply 
to all appointments necessary for the 
temporary government of this territory 
we shall have done probably all 
that we should be called upon to do." 

The recent speeches made in the 
South by the president and the opinions 
expressed by leading members of his 
cabinet and by his closest political 
friends do not lead to the belief, how-

ation outlined by the Cedar Rapids

and gave us the "glad hand" on account 
of our remarks a week ago regarding the

for George Chester in the district court 
office. The settlers one and all, feel as if 
a hanging bee in which Taylor played the 
principal part w<3uld be a good thing. 
Taylor is no man for the place and the 
sooner Chester finds that out. the better 
it will be for him and for those who have 
business with the office. A man always 
has a few friends, but as to friends for 
Taylor among the homesteaders we fail 
to see any.

what action may be necessar.v to i)rocure

commissioners, members of the legisla- 
tive delegation, the county audit >r. city 
Comptroller and cit.v and county att<»rneys 
are by the resolution invited to be pres- 
ent. The resolution was passed on the 
suggestion of Senator-elect C. O. Bald- 
win, who re»iuested a conference in regard 
U> the repeal of the forfeited tax law. 
The resoliuioti was framed to . nibraee 
other subjects at the suggestion of Alder- 
man Crass weller, who referred to the 
matter of the prorating of the railroad 
gross earnings tax. charter legislation, 
etc.. as (pustions that it might be desir- 
iible to liiscuss also. 
The pay rolls and bills of the police and 
-lire departments were pjissed in full im 
tlie recommendation of the claims and ac- 
counts committee. Chairman Jefferson of 
the committee, stated that the committee 
■wanted it understood in future that if 
thf pay rolls and bills exceeded the limit 
the line would bo drawn sharp on the 

Alderman Cromwell offered an amend- 
ment allinviiis the pay rolls for November 
as reported, lixing the limit of the pav 
roll in future at $::755 and the lotal 
monthly expenditure at $2<n';.t'.i>. und di- 
recting that tl'.e bills for telephone, lipht 
and water be tirsi audited in the order 
named. This, he saiil. would obviate 
TpiUbU- by providing a defniite monthlv 
limit: the pay rolls must be allowed nnv- 
how and the contract charges for tele- 
l>hone. light and water would be provided 

Alderman Cra.«ssweller objected that this 
w. iild deprive the department of the 
I>rivile£;e of using any unexoended surplus 
of the monthly average. The amendment 
was defeated. 

A resoluti'in introduced by Alderman 
Simps<>n was passed. re< the tirt- 
commisslnners to inform tile council 
w h«^ther they had directl.v or indirectly led 
11. H. Inglis. the member of the lire de- 
partment who claims that he was refu.sed 
reinstatement after returning from serv- 
ice in the Spanish-American war. to b.- 
Ileve that ht would be reinstated in c:ise 
be gMe up his position to enlist. This 
matter v/as first brought up by Alderman 
JefTt-rsr.n. He .said that h»' was informed 
that th*- resolution passed by the counci; 
promising reinstatement to m.n who en- 
listed was bein^i Ignored and he wanted 
to kn>w if that was the fact. Alderman 
Simii.-on infirmed hiri of the resolution 
th;;t he had i>repared. 

Superintendent Crawford had in a com- 
munication relative 'o the condition of 
The pumps and engines at r.akewood. 
ThfTe were some deviations from the con- 
tract. It was stated, the (Iv wheels being 
eighteen in.c;tead of thirteen feet in 
<Ma.Tieier. the diaphragms providing an 
area of J.-5 per cent greater than the ca- 
pacity of the pumps instea>l of 2'> per 
cent, and numerous minor differences It 
was stated that there is no leakage but 
if there should be to the extent of as 
much as 2 per cent ♦he eapaeitv would 
fa.! below o".:i(iti.<Aii) sailors. If there is no 
.slippage, the capacity would, is was stat- 
ed rise about lZc>.<m gallons above that 

Alderman Sang called up the resolution 
dispensing with Mr. Crawford's serv- 
ices and jirovidlng for turning over the 
supplementary system to the water 
boird. Assistant City Attornev S'lencer 
stated that there vas nothitig in the 
contract to prevent transferring the svs- 
tem from the board of public works' to 
the water board. The date for the dis- 
' barge of Mr. Crawford was made Dec. 

A resolution introduced by Alderman 
Krumsieg. was passed directing the city 
attorney to take stens to nroteet the 
titys interest in the street niilwav com- 
pany's receivership and collect the "license 
fee on street cars operated in West Du- 

A petition from the wood vendors was 
received asking the passage of an ordi- 
nance for licensing them and regulating 
the trade. The matter was referred to 
the committee on ordinances and resolu- 
tions with instructions to confer with 
the city attorney in regard to the terms 
of "^uch a measure. 

The ordinance providing for the em- 
ployment of prisoners on the streets was 
passed. Alderman Krumsieg lodged a pro- 
test on the ground that it took work fiom 
hf)nest and needy men. Alderman Duren 
objeeted that ic was unconstitutional. 
Alderman Rlchaid.son said he had rather 
work than be idle if he went to jail. 
"You're barred by age," remarked Al- 
derman Sang. 

Alderman Griffln hailed the measure as 
the entering wedge for an eight-hour da v. 
The council had shown that it was wlfl- 
ing to concede an eight-hour day to the 
jail gang, if it would not allow It to 
honest men. Aldermen Duren. Krumsieg 
and Tischer voted nay on the measure. 

The uncontested Julv bills of Trustees 
Unlermeyer and Washburn in the sum of 
$£41.94, were allowed, payment to be made 
on the payment by them of all money due 
the city by the contract of Aug. 1.',. 

President Cochrane, in naming the ad- 
ditional members of the canal and dyke 
c-ommlssion, said that he had received 
the names of many who would make 
valuable members but he felt constrained 
to limit the number of those apjxdnted 
and the four additional lest it grow too 
bulky to be of the highest efficiency. 

The gas rates stirred up considerabli; 
controveisy. Alderman Sang objected that 
in them tnere was the same discrimina- 
tion as in the water schedule. In rejily 
to this It was argued b\ Aldermen Crass- 
weller, Crowley and Jefferson that com- 
jtetitlon must be met. If the city could 
not meet the competition and make the 
plant pay. Alderman Crassweller said, 
the taxpayers would have lo pay the 
bonds out of their pockets. An unsuc-

The Superior Street Railway 

Seems to Care Little For 

Comfort of Patrons. 

People who travel daily l>etween Du- 
luth and West Su vrior on the street 
cars are wondering why it is that they 
are compelled to transfer on the Wis- 
consin side of the bridge. The an- 
nouncement has been made many times, 
presumably on the very best authority, 
that as soon as the Superior narro".. 
guage tracks were replaced with stand- 
ard guage, cars would run direct from 
the Superior hotel across the bay to 
the business center of Duluth. The 
standard guage tracks are now luiilt to 
the big liriilge and standard guage cars 
are being operated over them through 
Tower avenue in West Superior, but 
notv.ithstanding this fact, the passenger 
from Duluth is dumped out of the car 
as soon as it touches Wisconsin soil. 
after being given a transfer chtvk an'j 
made to stand on the roadside shiver- 
ing in the cold until it suits the con- 
venience of the Superior street car peo- 
ple to send a car to jiick him u:>. 
The experience is repeated on the re- 
turn trip. 

The trif) to West Superior is now at- 
tended with more inconvenience than 
before th> standard guage tracks were 
completed. Then a street car was sta- 
tioned at the point of transfer and was 
kept warm for the accommodation oi' 
waiting passengers. When the new 
tracks were laid this car was taken 
away, and now there is no shelter what- 
ever for passengers who are unfortu- 
nat.' enough to In? on cars that do not 
make close connection. 

A Herald reporter today asked Luther 
Mendenhali. receiver of the Duluth 
Street Railway company, why it is that 
the two street railway systems are no: 
connected up and the traveling public- 
given a through service between the iw,. 
cities. He said he was unalde to an^ the question, and suggested that S. 
T. Xorvell, manager of the Superior 
lines, might give the desired informa- 
tion. Mr. Mendenhali said there was 
no good reason why the Superior cars 
should not iiin to Duluth and the r>u- 
luth cars to Superior. The traflic agree- 
ment between the t'.vo companies, he 
said, had been in the hands of Mr. Xor- 
vell for some time, but it had not beer: 
signed up by all parties concerned and 
was consequently not yet operative. H ■ 
said he- did not know why it had not 
been acted upon and made orerativc. 
and Mr. Xorvell had as yet volunteeieil 
no information on the subjei t. In the 
meantime a long-suffering public is im- 
patiently awaiting Mr. Xorvell's con- 


It is stated that a man won and lost 
$o,000.00<J on horse races. For twenty .vears 
he kept at it, and most of the time he 
wa.-! successful. At last fortune turned 
against him, and today he is penniless. 
Gambling is a good deal like neglect of 
liealth. It can be kept up a long time, but 
in the end it is disastrous. Fortunes are 
harder to restore than health. The first 
step toward winning back lost health is 
to restore the digestive organs to a 
normal condition. For this purpose Hos- 
tetter's Stomach IJitters Is far ahead of 
anything else. This remedy is a specific 
for indigestion, dyspepsia, fever, ague, 
nervousness and sleeplessness. It Is a 
wonderful tonic. Druggists sell it every- 


Large Audience at the Spalding Last 

The concert given last evening at tlie 
Spalding by the Cecilian choral was 
very pleasin.g, and a large number were 
present. It was given for Circle Xo. 7 
of St. Paul's guild. Miss Bradshaw, of 
Superior, was unable to appear, but 
aside from this there was no variation 
from the program. The Cecilian Choral 
society sang a serenade by Goldberg, a 
Neapolitan boat song, and the Bridal 
March from "Lohengrin." Miss Mc- 
Kay and Mrs. William White sang "O 
Wert Thou in the Cauld Blast," by 
Mendelssohn, and gave two encore 
numbers, Scotch songs, that were very 
pleasing. Mrs. C. P. Craig sang "The 
Gay Gitana." by Harris, a fine number. 
Mrs. Thornton. Mrs. Hoyt, Mrs. Mc- 
•Vuliffe. Miss Paddock and Miss Went- 
worth sang a quintet from "Oberon," 
by Weber. Miss Blanche Howe gave a 
very pleasing recitation. A very fine 
number was an arrangement of Sulli- 
van's "Lost Chord" for an octet. It 
was sung by Mrs. Thornton, Miss 
Hitchcock, Miss Ensign, Mrs, Segog, 
Mrs. McAuliffe, Miss Calverly, Miss 
Mars and Miss Wisted. 

Several selections were given after 
the regular program by the Ladies' 
Mandolin club, consisting of Miss 
Walker, Mrs. White, Mrs. Hartley, Mrs. 
Fishbein. Mrs. Myers. Mrs. Fessler, 
Mrs. Wadhams and Mrs. Swift.

Alleged Plan of Vanderbilts 
to Control a Through Rail- 
road Line. 


Use of Chicago & Northwest- 
ern and Union Pacific 
West of Chicago. 

New York, Dec. 20.— The Trilnine says: 
It is reported that a. combination of the 
Vanderbilt system east of Chicago with 
the Chicago & Northwestern and the 
Cnnm Pacilic systems may l)e under 
consideration. The New York Central 
will, under such a scheme, exchange its 
o'-is : er cent collateral trust l>onds for 
Chicago & Northwestern preferred at 
200 and at 100 for I'nion Pacific pre- 
ferred and 50 for common. The mile- 
age of the New York Central system 
would then stand at 16.026. with a 
l>onueil debt of $4!»2,000.O0O. $:54S.OOO.(X)0 
uVi per cent collateral trust and $100.- 
000,000 stock. The grand total of fixed 
charges would be $o I,. '155,000. 

According to the latest published re- 
turns and estimates, the net earnings, 
after rentals and taxes, would aggre- 
gate $46,350,000 for the system, leaving 
a balance fo $14.7tt5,000 after fixed 
charges, or about 15 per cent on New 
York Central stock. 

The report that the Vanderbilt lines 
east of Chicago might be combined 
with the Chiiago & Northwestern and 
the I'niim Pacific is by no means a new 
one and seems to be not improbable, al- 
though the joining of forces is not likely 
to Ik? effected for a good while to come. 
The consolidation of the New York 
Central and Lake Sh(ue roads, it is un- 
derstood, has shown results so satis- 
factory to the interests which brought 
it about that they are planning to eic- 
tend the plant to the Michigan Central 
and other lines of the Vanderbilt sys- 
tem. While the Chicago & Northwest- 
ern is not actually a part of that sys- 
tem, the Vantlerbilis virtually control 
it, and their holdings of I'nion Pacific 
securities are so extensive that the> 
are inlluential in the direction of that 
railrojid system. By increasing their 
investnients in the Cnion Pacific to a:-, 
extent necessary to give theni coatr<jl 
they would have a fine route to the far 
West by the New Yoi k Central and the 
West Shore to Buffalo: by the Lake 
Shore & Michigan Southern and the 
Michigan Central, thenco to Chicago, 
from Chicago to Oiuaha by the Chicago 
& Northwestern and from Omaha west- 
ward by the Union Pacific. 

The I'nion Pacific is still regarded as- 
most likely to be the r^urchaser of the 
Chicago & Alton. If it should take 
over that roa<l. its own subsequent ab- 
sorption by the Vanlerbilt sy.-tem would 
give the latter an alternative route be- 
tween Chicago and the far West, as the 
Alton extends from Chicago to Kansas 
City, the terminus of the Kansas City 
branch of the I'nion Pacific, which joins 
the main line at Cheyenne.

The case, which was tried before Jus-

siderable interest, owing to the nature 
of the charge and the high standing of 
the accused. As Fred Mert<'ns. Alex

Proposition to Reimburse City Direct 
for Canal Would Encounter It. 

Judge J. D. h^sign, chairman of the 
canal and dyke commission appointed 
recently by the city council to take such 
steps as are deemed advisable to secure 

from congress an appropriation to re« 
imburse the city of Duluth for money 
expended in digging and improving the 
ship canal and building the dyke across 
the harbor, has announced the first 
meeting for tomorrow afternoon in 
Capt. Alex McDougall's office in the 
•Mesaba block. 

one of the leading members of the 
committee, in discussing the prospects 
for success, said to a reporter for The 
Herald that he thought it would Ije a 
V -ry dillicult matter to induce congress 
to make an appropriation direct to the 
city. Me thought that if the money was 
asketl to be u.sed for some specific public 
improvement, many of the objections 
that will Ite offered will b? removed and 
the chances for success materially in- 
creased. He was of the opinion that 
the money could l>c olitalned to apply 
on the •••urchase of Minnesota Point for 
park purposes, as suggested by Charles 
A. Towne in a recent interview in The 
Herald. Should the appropriation lie 
asked to be placed in the general fuml 
of the city treasury, he said, it would 
array in opposition to it all of the 
enemies of the city, but If it is pro- 
posed to make a < ity or national park 
«)f Mlnnest)ta Point, the inlluence of Su- 
lerior would be used for it, and through 
that the Wisconsin delegation could 
easily be united with the Minnesot.a 
delegation, and together they would 
In a short time be able to accomplish 
the desir.Hl result, .\lthough Minne- 
sota Point, he said, was in Minnesota, 
it is so situated that it v.ould be as 
valuable for park iiurposes for Su-eriur 
as Duluth. and the people there would 
be as eag.T to have it utilized for thai 
purpose as those on this side of th"^ 
I)ay. He will present his ideas in full 
at the meeting of the commission to- 
morrow afternoon. 


E. D. Hughes Falls rrom the 

Rear of an Iron Range 


Yesterday The Herald contained a ref- 
erence to the large number of cases of 
fra.ctured skulls In Duluth during the past 
few months. Before the article was fair-

I he President and His Party Pleased 
Over Their Trip. 

Washington, Dec. 20.— The presiden- 
tial party, .ifter an absence of seven 
days in the South, arrived at the Penn> 
sylvania station over the Southern rail- 
road at 11:30 o'clock this morning, ex- 
actly on schedule time. 

With the exception of Mrs. McKinley. 

who was slightly indisposed at Atlanta, 
every member of the party has been in 
the best of health, and all pronounced 
the trip most enjoyable and a splendid 
success in every way. 

Everywhere a stop was made the 
president was received with greetings 
and demonstrations of an enthusiastic 
character, and during the entire week 
there was not a disturbing incident. 

The run from Columbia, S. C, was un- 
eventful, and on its arrival here the 
special train of six Pullman cars, under 
the personal supervision of General 
Agent L. S. Brown, was run up the 
Sixth street siding, from whence the 
president and Mrs. McKinley were 
driven to the White House at once, 
while the members of the cabinet and 
their ladies and other members of the 
parly were driven to their homes. 

The last morning aboard the presi- 
dential train was spent chiefly in fare- 
well visits paid upon each other by 
the members of the party. The presi- 
dent received all his guests in his own 
car. He expressed his entire satisfac- 
tion over the trip. In this sentiment 
every member of the cabinet aboard 
the train coincided when Gens. Wheeler 
and Shaffer repeated the eulogistic ex- 
pressions already made in their public 
speeches. The general impression pre- 
vailed that the trip had cemented to a 
marvelous degree the good feeling be- 
tween North and South. 

The original object of the visit, to 
celebrate the peace with Spain, lost its 
significance directly 'after the presi- 
dent's memorable utterance regarding 
the care of the Confederate dead.

St. Paul Mortgage Loan Man 

Favors County Ownership 

of Abstracts. 

The Ijoard of county commlBaioners 
was in session this afternoon and the 
principal business to come up was the 
proposition to sell the county the 
Haines abstract books for $15,000. Along 
this line theie were ti> be a large num- 
ber of coinmunirations. it was under- 
stootl. In favor of the deal and in op- 
position to it. This morning there were 
two communications on lile, one of 
them from St. Paul. The writer was 
D. S. B. Johnston, a prominent real es- 
tate and mortgage loan man there. His 
letter was stnmgly in favor of the pur- 
chase of the plant. He said that he was 
In favor of it as a taxpayer of this 
city for several reasons. He said that 
private abstracts seldom have absolute 
guarantee of correctness, and among 
the thousands of abstracts his company 
have used it has never employed a 
private abstract company where the 
county owned its own. Ramsey coun- 
ty owns its own plant, which does not 
pay expenses just now. but that is not 
to be expected in such times. If it 
never pays expenses Mr. Johnston says 
that as a taxpayer he will cheerfully 
contribute to keep it going. Leaving 
out the real estate agents the writer 
believes that a majority of the owners 
of property in this county will favor 

He «'loses by stating that he wrote 
the communication because of an ar- 
ticle he saw In The Herald of Dec. 17. 
In that article he saw an atlidavit by 
one J. A. Soucheray, of St. Paul, im- 
plying that he is an of the 
Kamsey county abstract office. Tin 
St. Paul directory, says Mr. Johnston, 
gives Mr. Soucheray's occupation as 
president of the St. Paul Abstract com- 
pany, a private plant. 

N. H. W'ilson has a brief communica- 
tion in which he says that he favors 
county ownership of an abstract plant. 
He believes that the register of deeds' 
office is the proper place to obtaiin in- 
formation in reference to titles. As to 
the means of acquiring titles he has no 
express opinion, except that if reliable 
and complete books can be obtained for 
immediate use at a fair price he Is in 
favor of the purchase. 

Register of Deeds Lofgren recom- 
mends that the county cause a copy to 
be made of book A of plats. It has 
been in use for forty years and Is get- 
ting to be illegible. As it was filed be- 
fore the law required duplicates of plal 
boks it is the only copy in existence, 
and in order to avoid endless litigation 
he suggests that a copy be made foi 
the use of the public find that the old be filed away. 

The bonds of County Surveyor R. W. 
Nichols were filed in the sum of $,"00 
with K. K. Coe and Emil Engel as

Washington. Dec. 20.— At the opening 
of the session of the house today Mr. 
Cannon called up the conference report 
on the army and navy deficiency appro- 
priation bill and moved Its adoption. 

Mr. Dearmond (Dem.) of Missouri 
asked whether the reapropriation for 
the balance of the $50,000,000 to be ex- 
pended under the direction of the presi- 
dent would in any way sanction or au- 
thorize the payment out of that fund 
of $100,000 to Whitelaw Reld and Judge 
Day for services as peace commis- 

Mr. Cannon said he knew nothing 
about it and, on his statement that this 
reappropriation made no change au- 
thorizing such an expenditure, the re- 
port was adopted.

An Aggressive Campaign Is 
Started Against the Con- 
gressman From Utah. 

New York, Dec. 20.— There were about 
liOO persons present at the meeting of 
the Woman's Board of Home Missions 
of th'e Presbyterian church in this city 
today. The object of the meeting was to 
inaugurate an aggressive campaign to 
prevent the seating of Brigham H. 
Roberts, an avowed polygamist, as rep- 
resentative from Utah in the Fifty-sixth 

Rev. Dr. Campbell, of Salt Lake City, 
introduced Eugene Young, a grandson 
of Brigham Young, and Mrs. Fannie 

Mr. Young said among other ::hingr: 
"There seems to be a disposition in the 
East, particularly among the churches, 
to treat the revival of the Mormon 
issue as a minor matter. There is an 
inclination to view the election to con- 
giess of B. H. Robert.s — a three or four- 
ply polygamist, still living in polygamy 
—as an unavoidable outcome of that 
eondition in I'tah, and a mere question 
of personal morality. 

"Some day they will see, as those who 
know Mormon ambitions do now, that 
Mr. Roberts is a mere instrument, a 
representative of mighty forces. They 
will learn that through his election a 
people 300,000 strong have turned from 
American liberty and American moral- 
ity and have taken the initial step 
toward the establishment of a hier- 
archy foreign to our institutions and 
our social laws, in the midst of our re- 
public. In dragging polygamy into 
the house of representatives Mr. Rob- 
erts is representing the defiant senti- 
ment of the whole Mormon people; then 
the people must not rest until congress 
has cast him out, a warning to all 
covenant breakers and all polygam-

Hawaii, Uncle Sail's new colony in the 
Pacilic ocean, has a nong its postal issues 
some very valuable stamps, says the I'hil- 
adelphia Times. Th j early Issues of most 
countries and islan 3s are desirable and 
command good pri< es, but those of Ha- 
waii are noticeably scarce and with one 
exception briny the highest prices of any 
colony In the world The 2-cent stamp of 
the llrst Is.'^ue is univ'ersally recognized as 
one of the rarest arleties in existfenco. 

having sold m Lone on some time ago for 
the enormous sum < f $35<>0. 

Thi.'' areat rarity 'vas issued in 1.S31, four 
years after the tirs .government issue of 
the Lulled Stales. ?roTCi six to ten speci- 
mens are known, thiu.erh a few more may 
exist which have lol been taken from 
their snug hiding places. One was ex- 
amined by the wrl er a short time ago. 
The pajwr was shin v' with a faint grayish 
tint, and was so thin as to be almost 
transparent. The ascription "HawaUan 
J'ostage" appears :it the top, the figure 
"2" is in the center in a square, surround- 
ed by scroll work, and the value in let- 
ters Is at the bottoia. 

The stamp has no . always brought such 
an enormous price, but only since it be- 
came known how lew specimens existed. 
The last one to c< me upon the ntarkel 
brought the fourth dghest price ever paid 
for a single postage stamj) — $3.'i<K> — and wa.s 
actnall.v sold to a . European collector for 
that sum. It mak'S one feel strange to 
handle such a valu ible stamp as this. To 
tear it the least bit or soil It would reduce 
its value perhaps oi o-half, and It can well 
be imagined that the owner guard.s it 
very cauli<jusly. 1 hink of a little piece 
of p.'iper being worth such an amount of 
money— a piece of paper that most peo- 
ple would p;iss on the street and never 
think of picking up 

Like all the raret t postage stamps, the 
best assortment of the 2-cent Hawaii is 
to be found in tht FerarrI collection of 
Paris, the world's largest and most val- 
uable accumulation of postage stamps. In 
it are several niagaitieent specimens, :is 
well as a number of the 5-cent and 13- 
cent stamps of the same issue. This col- 
lection contains ma ny of the rarest speci- 
mens known to exist, and is estimated to 
be worth upwards c f $1,000,000. Many years 
were required to ge: together such an ag- 
gregation ol posta issues, and many 
thousands of dolla s have been spent to 
bring it to its pre: ent enviable position. 
The Ferrari codec :ion is said to be as 
nearly complete as it Is possible to make 

The story of the < Iscovery of the last 2- 
cent Hawaiian stan p Is Interesting, show- 
ing the t|ueer plac is in which philatelic 
rarefies arc somet mes found. Early in 
:>!i7 an old schooll ouse near Honolulu 
was being torn dow i. The wall paper was 
hnnglng down in ? everal places, and In 
one corner disclosec a hole In the plaster, 
out of curiosity th« paper was torn away 
ano upon close examination a number of 
stamps were found lodged on the lath in- 
side The finder tt ought they were very 
ci:ricus^. Apparent y they were postage 
sti'U ps, but not ai all like the issue in 
use at the time. T ley were subsequently 
shown to a collec :or, who Immediately 
recognized the 2-ce it as belonging to the 
scarce first issue, and sold It for the tinder 
fo.- a good round s im of money. This is 
th<^ wav one $35(h) s amp was found. 

The 5-cent and 3-cent stamps of the 
first issue are als( verv scarce, but do 
not bring nearly s ) high a price as the 
2-cent The .i-cent in average conaition 
is worth from T50 to $600, wiiile the 13- 
eent sells at from ?150 to *300. There are 
many more of th se in existence than 

of the 2-cent. yet they are very rarely 
sten in collections. It Is not every phil- 
atelis--t who cares to pay out hundreds 
of dollars for a single epecimen. For the 
price of one of these early Hawaiian 
stjimps he could buv a hundred or a mou- 
sfind different varieties and thus make 
u f.«r better showin;?. 

Specimens of the .''.-cent and 13-cent 
stamps were found in Hawaii about a ago. An old resident of Hilo, a small 
town in the Interior, dealred to lend a lit- 
tle assistance to building a church, and 
donated a collection of stamps which had 
been in the family for nearl.x forty years. 
He probablv had no idea that the cudcc- 
tlon was valuable, as it had been made in 
the '50s, when cancelled postage stamps 
had practlcallv no value at all. He sent 
it to a member of a Honolulu Iron firm, 
with instructions to dispose of it to the 
best advantage and turn the proceeds 
over to the church. The collection wa.s 
not a large one, containing only about :!00 
specimens, but In it were 5-cent and 13- 
cent stamps of the Jirst issue, worth 
nearlv $1000, and several other varieties 
of considerable value. Altogether, about 
WOOO was received for the collection, 
ne irlv enough to build the church. 

The second issue ol' the islands, and 
the next in point of rarity, appeared in 
1S5:.. two years later. This consisted i)f 
but two stamps. 5-ctnt blue and 13-cent 
red. Various kinds of paper were usetl in 
the issue. 1 he most valuable specimen is 
the .5-cent stamp on thick paper, having 
a list ]>rice of S50 unused and W) used. 
The work on this issue Is very crude. 
Tne design shows a portrait of the ruler 
ill the center, with inscriptions at the 
top, bottom and sider. One of the stamps 
Is nrlced as low as S5, but is only seen 
occasionallv. Several are cheaper unused 
than used, and the Issue has frequently 
been counterfeited. 

The third series was issued In lSu9. and 
consisted of three stamps. 1-cent. i-ceiit 
and 5-cent. The 1-cent was printed In both 
biack and ttreen and theic are numerous 
varieties of each stamp, the prices rang- 
ing from $2 to $20. The design is somewhat 
similar to that of the tirst Issue. The fig- 
ure of value is in the center, and Inscrip- 
tion at the top. bottom ;-nd sides. A <ie- 
parture wtis made in lsC4. when a serie.s 
of six stamps issued. These were 
adorned with various portraits, and were 
belter executed than any of the previmi.s 
issues. Other issues appeared in 1ST5. I\s2, 
ISS,T and 1SS9. Early in 1S93 the |>r«>visioiial 
government was established, and the 
stamps were "surcharee<l" to conform 
with the regulations of the new party. 

The following year a pictorial issue ot 
six denominations made its appearan<e. 
and from an artist ie itolnt of view w»s 
perhaps the finest set of stamps Issued by 
the Hawaiian government. V'arious de- 
signs were used, amor.g- thern being the 
Hawaiian coal-of-arms. mountain peakis 
an ocean scene and a portrait of Presi- 
dent Dole. In 18% a set of official stamps 
was aut'iorized. The set included six 
stamps, ranging in value from 2 cents to 
25 eents. The above, together with a few 
envelopes, complete the postal issues of 
the Hawaiian government 

When It necame evident that the 
islands would be annexed to the United 
States, the interest m Hawaiian stamps 
at once Increased, and prices advaneed 
materially. No more would be used and as 
philatelists will henceforth take a mueh 
greater interest in them. It was a foi\- 
gone conclusion that they never would be 
any cheaper. For a European !)Ower t'»

What to Do With Them Is 
a Problem With the 


Washinsion. Dec. 20.— There has bet'U 
some .sp.iulation as to what disposition 
the navy d-partment wlil make of the 
mo<l.-in Kuns laptiirpa from Sp«iu tlur- 
ing ihe r rent war. it lius been g^eneraliy 
understood that thiA obsolete ordnance 
would figure only as souvenirs for dis- 
tribution by the government to states 
and munifipaliiies. but there was ciulte 
a number of serviceable modern cannon, 
mostlv naval kuiis. »aptureil at Santlaso 
and tMsewht^re. It is slated by ihf de- 
partment that these Kuns are not likely 
to form a very valiiable asset. 

The 4.T-int h guns from the Maria Ter- 
esa, the Vizeaya and the Colon, several 
of which are now at the Washington 
navv yard, are not the most modern type 
of this weapon. They are different in 
calibt^i- from any guns in the American 
navy exiept those of the New Orleans 
and" the Albany, now being completed 
abroaii. The i;-lnfh «|idck-f!ie ^ims caji-

that execpt in i ase of accidt-nt lo one of 
tilt- guns of the New Orleans or Alb.m.v 
iherf would In' small likelihood of .m-tiing 
any of the captured onlnance Into service. 
The out'siion of b«»ring out th** i-apturt-d , 
guns 'to the next high callbt-r was con- 
sidered, btit rejected as reducing too I 
.1,'rcatly the factor of safety. 

There Is on hand cfiiite a supply of am- 
munition for the peculiar armament of 
our two atloptcd cruisers and ii is 
thought by the time this is used up this 
country will be In a iM)sition to supply 
them with all of the sort of unimuniti >n 
Ihcy need. 

It is interesting to note that the new 
guns being planned for the nav> will con- 
form in ct-rtain material re.--pects lo those 
of th<' New Orleans, which was chisscd 
bv all the offit-crs v. ho saw her In action 
during the war as a niarvelously quick-

ehitectiirc. Mt^v ginis are all "IM calib'/rs

length of the diameter of the bore. Our 
standard lias been 10 calibers, but the

Ch;i a.go. Doc. Lit.— The ordin.'UU'e pro-

thicago's street car Ujies was again the 
subject of debate In the city council last 
night but no decisive acthm was taken 
on It. On m»)tlon of Alderman Mavor. 

an opponent of extension, the ordinance 
was taken from the railway committee 
and rt'fij-red to tlie committee on city

Mayor Harrison overruled this point of 
order and the ordinance is now In the 
hands of the city hall committee, which 
is regarded as an anti-extension commit-

It was practically impossible for a man

With her staunch proportions little 
the worse for her terrible experience, 
the steamer Tampa was towed into the 
slip alongside the Duluth dock of thi 
Northwestern Fuel company at 3:13 
o'clock this morning, and the biggest 
wrecking job ever done on Lake Su- 
per! r was finished. To Capt. W. H. 
Singer and his employes of the Singer 
Tu..; company are due the credit for this 
remarkable piece of work, and quite 
naturally they are feeling good over it 
today. The Tampa was rescued after 
she had been abandoned as a t<)tal loss, 
when she had been lying for two weeks 
exposed to the hard weather of a 
northern autumn, it was not 
believed possible that anything could 
be done for her. 

Nothing was attempted toward her 
relief until Capt. Singer and his ex- 
pedition left Duluth two weeks ago yes- 
terday, to rescue the Tampa, and since 
then the expedition has been steadily 
at work. It has been the hardest kind 
•f work for all concerned, and it is a 
thing that refiects great credit on all 
of them that at this season of the year, 
after working for fourteen days In a 
most dangerous position, their labors 
are crowned with success. The fact 
will not only mean financial gains for 
Capt. Singer, but it will add to his al- 
ready strong reputation as a wrecker. 

The Tampa went ashore at Beaver 
bay during the blizzard of Nov. 22. 
about the same time as the steamer 
Arthur Orr. which went ashore at Bap- 
tism river, and was subsequently pulled 
off the rocks by Ca|)t. Singer's tugs. 
She was bound up with oOOO tons of 
coal for the Northwestern Fuel com- 
pany, antl 200(» of that targo will 
be delivered a mtmth late through the 
elTorts of the Singer expe<lition. The 
balance has been used by the tugs an.d 
steam i)umps on the wrecking opera- 
tions, lightered into scows or thrown 
overboard to lessen the weight of the 
ve.'--sel .in the rocks. Some of the coal 
was brought to Duluth in scows, so the 
amount saved will bo over 2000 tons. 

The .Singer expediticm started at work 
.Monday. De^-. .'>. antl the finishing touch 
was made at 4 o'clock yesterday after- 
noon, when the final pull was made that 
Uoated the vessel i.ff the ro<Tcs into deep 
water, amid the screeching of all th-> 
whistles in the vicinity, which included 
the throe tugs that were working on 
the job. As soon as the vessel lloated. 
and it v\ as found that she was in no 
danger, a start for Duluth was made. 
Two Harbors was pa.ssed at 9:30 o'clock 
last night, the Duluth entrance was 
reached at 2:1.'> o'd.ick this morning, 
and at :]:15 o'clock she was tied up at 
No. 1 slip of the Northwestern Fuel 

This morning tugs were breaking the 
ice in the slip so that the vessel could 
be brought up to the dock and un- 
loaded. The cargo was to be unloaded 
today, and after that the Tampa was 
Lo be taken to the drydock and re- 
puiixl. Her repairs will not bo such 
a tremendous task as might be Imag- 
ined from the stories that came to Du- 
luth of the vessel's condition after she 
was wrecked, and there were many ex- 
pressions of surprise at the excellent 
condition in which the vessel was 
found. The cabins arc in bad shape, 
owing to the busy manner in which 
north shore "pirates" rified the vessel 
during the two weeks in which she was 
abandoned, ripping off the mahogany 
trimmings and fixtures. 

Just forward of the boiler room there 
is a twist in the vessel's frame that is 
noticeable, but vesselmen say that as 
soon as the ship is placed in the dry- 
dock and ea.sed she will fall back into 
shape again .so that the spring will 
never be noticed. One of the steel 
arches of the vessel was broken where 
the hardest strain came when the 
Tampa rested on the rocks, but when 
the water was pumped out the open- 
ing shrank and the twisted portions 
sprang back into their original shape 
again. This hole was the worst one. 
and after it was patched up by the 
divers there was little trouble. While 
the vessel was lying in the slip today 
one pump kept her free without work- 
ing all the time, so it was evident that 
the water did not gain very fast in her 

It is hard for one not familiar with 
the work to realize the immensity of 
the task that has just been accom- 
plished. Capt. Singer himself, as well 
as his men, have been steadily at work 
for fifteen days, and their labors have 
been something of the nature of those 
of the wrecker in Hugo's "Toilers of 
the Sea," except that in the story the 
laborer worked with his hands and in 
the actual case there was steam and 
machinery to aid the human hands. 
Three of the Singer tugs, the Zenith. 
Capt. Harry Ditzel; the Superior, Capt. 
Ed England, and the Excelsior. Capt. 
Charles Green, have been on the work, 
the Zenith having been on the ground 
all of the time and the others most of 
the time with occasional trips to Du- 
luth for supplies.. The work has been 
continuous, and while there have been 
enough men to make it watch and 
watch, there has been little leisure for 
anyone, the time not spent in getting 
needed sleep being occupied in hard 

The weather has been good, with the 
exception of three nights, when the 
wind was a bit nasty, and the tug men 
were kept busy. Not only did they 
have to look out for the vessel and see 
that she was neither driven harder upon 
the rocks nor permitted to slip off into 
deep water before she was ready, but 
the rocks were so plenty that It was 
necessary to keep a sharp lookout at all 
times for the tugs themselves, else they 
might have been stove In and sunk. 
There were no accidents, however, ex- 
cept minor ones, such as the breaking 
of a wheel on the Zenith when the work 
was practically done. 

The work consisted of pumping out 
the vessel, patching up the holes as fast 
as they could be reached, and lightering 
the cargo. When it was thought that 
she was light enough the tugs started 
to pull at her. but it was a day or two 
before they did more than break rope.*. 
Then just the right amount of cargo 
seemed to have been removed, and the 
ship slid off into the deep water and 
floated free. At this every tug set up a 
screeching that brought the farmers ot 
Beaver Bay to their doors in amaze. 

The Tampa was on a shelf on the land 
side of a small island just off Beaver 
Bay. with thirty feet of her stern lit 
good water and the balance of her hard 

%in eight or ten rock.s. That she was a 
staunch boat is attested by the fact that 
she stood the punishment she received 
in this position. Master Wrecker Ryan, 
of the Singer expedition, pronounced the 
job the biggest ever done on the lake 
today, and he said that his success was 
due to the pluck and staying qualities 
of Capt. Walter H. Singer. 

The insurance companies are highly 
jdea.sed with the job. and it is possible 
that it may result in the establishment 
of a permanent wrecking crew at the 
head of the lakes. 

Capt. Singer, who has been at the 
wreck during all uf the time. Is laid up 
today with a severe attack of neuralgia. 
He was suffering with it when he iefl. 
and his fifteen days of work and ex- 
posure have made it much worse. It 
is not believed that he will be out for a 
day or two, as the physicians dii'ected 
him to remain tjuiet for a time. 

It is estimated that after the wreck- 
ing bills and repair charges and other 
expenses of saving the Tampa are paid, 
the insurance companies will save 
nearly $50,000 if the boat is turned over 
to them. The question of the owner- 
ship of the vessel is one that may have 
to be left to the courts. The Tampa 
was abandoned as a total loss and then 
she came into the hands of the in.^ur- 
ance companies. If they can fix her 
up and turn her over to her owners, the 
Whitney Transportation company of 
Detroit, they will undoubtedly do so. 
On the other hand, the owners, if they 
are like most owners in similar circum- 
stances, will probably want to get her 
$80,000 insurance and let the vessel slide. 
It is not yet known, of course, which 
one will have its way, but the courts 
may possibly have to decide it. 

A vessel is said to be a constructive 
total loss when wiecking and repair 
bills amount to more than half her in- 
surance. In that case the insurance 
companies pay the owners the full 
amount of the insurance policy and gel 
what they lan out of the vessel. If 
the repair and wrecking bills amount to 
less than half the insurance the insur- 
ance companies fix up the vessel and 
turn her over to the owners. It is not 
.Net known wiiich course will apply in 
this case. 

A Herald reporter saw Capt. Singer 
at his residence this afternoon and 
asked him about his work. He .said 
that it had been a hard fight, though it 
does not sound nearly so hard to hear 
him tell it as it does to hear some of 
his men who are les.*? modest. Once 
during the fight v. ilh the sea the ves.sel 
was up several fe.t when one night a 
boiler gave out, and next morning the 
vessel had sunk back to her old position 
on the rocks. Theie was nothing to 
do but get to worl< and begin all ovei 
again. Several times the case looked 
pretty hopeless and nothing but hold- 
ing on and sticking to it brought the 
job through. Cajd. Singer has nothing 
but good words for his men, especially 
for his captains. 

The Tampa is equipped with fine 
machinery and it is all in good condi- 
tion. In fact there has been steam in 
her boilers for nearly a week, and she 
has been supplying some of the steam 
for the pumps that have been working 
on her hold. 

Capt. Singer has already been asked 
to look at the .steamer Harlem and see 
if he believes that it is possible to do 
anything with her. He received a tele- 
gram asking him to do this while he 
was at Work on the Tamjia, but as he 
Was unable to leave that job he has 
not yet attended to it. He said this 
morning that if the insurance com- 
panies insised upon his going to the 
Harlem he would do so. for he was in 
that business and he could not refuse 
an order of that kind. If the insur- 
ance companies desire it, he will leave 
in a few days.

Kansas City. Dec. 20.— The eighteenth 
annual convention of the American 
Fedeiation of Labor, after seven days 
of deliberation, will doubtless close its 
work tonight, after electing national 
officers and selecting a place for the 
next annual gathering. 

The election of the old officers, headed 
by President Samuel Gompers, with 
two additional vice presidents, seems 
certain. Louisville and Detroit are 
making a fight for the next convention. 
The only contest will come in the elec- 
tion of fraternal delegates and vice 
i; residents. Fraternal Delegate Tiacy 
seems certain of election. The fact that 
James O'Connell is now holding ofllce 
as one of the vice presidents will cause 
some opposition to his candidacy. Many 
think that .Vdrian M. Jones, of Chicago, 
wil be one of the lucky men. Three of 
the vice presidents will l)e re-eiected, 
and three others, It is probable, will be 
Edward Morris, Theodore Shaffer, and 
of— John Mitchell. John F. Tobin 
H. S. Mills. The fact that John Fahey. 
who is. with Mitchell, a delegate from 
the miners, will also stand for election, 
may result in neither getting sufficient 
votes for election. 

It is reported that W. B. Prescott, for 
five years president of the International 
Typographical union, will be put ii-, 
nomination against Gompers by tn- 
Cowen faction. Gompeis will prob- 
ably beat him easily. 

The election of officers will take place 
at the afternoon session. Much of the 
time of the convention previous to that 
time was taken up in amending thr 
constitution and liroadening the sco.jc 
of organization. Consideralile talking

Among other amendments to the 
constitution adopted was that increas-

a majority of the delegates, the In-

settled. Acting upon the report of the 
board of arbitration aupolnted last week

bitrators also demanded and were prom-

cago and St. I.ouls should b' amalgamated 
at once.

Iron Ore Moved at Average of Fifty- 
Nine Cents. 

The Marine Review .says that the aver- 
age rate at which all iron ore wa.s moved 
from the head of Lake Superior during 
the past season Is within a very small 
fraction of 59 cents. The fraction is so 
small that it is not worth mentioning. 
This is the one Important Item In the gen- 
eral summary of lake freights, on account 
of the great extent of the ore trafflc com- 
pared with other branches of the lake 
trade. This figure does not represent the 
average of daily rates. It is the average 
ligiired on a ioon.ige baHis, representing 
both wild and contract ore, and was se- 
cured through reports from all the ore 
companies regarding their tonnage and 
their several averages. A few shippers 
moved their entire ore output at averages 
below this figure, in one case (that of a 
shipper who was finished Nov. It at 5»; 
cents. All other figures given in the Re- 
view's tables are averages of the rates 
that ruled from day to day. not tonnage 
averages. The following were the aver- 
age daily rates of freight during the past 
season :

the same as the average during 1897. It 
will be noted that notwithstanding the

nigh fall ore rates ($1 a ton was paid on 
some single trip charters) the tonnage 
average is considerably lower than last 
year, due to the largt number of GO-cent

ages of wild rates on >re are also low, in 
view of the fall advances, but they are

The Remains of Mrs. Roliinger to Be 

Chicago. Dec. 20.— In order to avoid 
possible dispute over the "corpus de- 
licti" and to save a repetition of the 
Luetgert experience, it is very probaiile 
that the body of Mrs. Theresa Kollinger, 
for whose alleged murder and partial 
eremation her hu:^band is under arrest, 
will be exhumed by the police and com- 
plete identification established. The 
I body v»as identilied by the unfortunate 
woman's clothing, but the police wish to 
secure a ring which she wore and which 
will prove beyond doubt her identity. 
Lena Hecker, the waitress for the love 
of whom Kollinger is l)elieved bv tne 
police to have murderid his wife, is ex- 
pected in Chicago soon, and interesting 
developments are expected. It is learneil 
that Roliinger passed himself off as it 
single man not only to Miss Hecker. 
but also to other women with whom t!'.<> 
police have learned the Austrian was in 
the habit of associating.

changed his plea to guilty in police 
court yesterday afternoon. His attor-

than he might ft.el called on to make 
it for similar offenses in future. Lund-

Barnett & Record Company 

Will Rebuild Ore Dock at 

Two Harbors. 


New Dock Will Have Capacity 

of Torty Thousand 


J. L. (Ji'catsinger. jtresident of the 
Duluth & Iron Itange Railroad com- 
pany, this morning awarded the con- 
tract for tearing down and rebuilding 
ore dock No. 1 at Two Harbors to the 
E^arnett & Itecoid company, of Minne- 
apolis. There were seven bidders for 
the contract, the four lowest being very 
close together with their figures. The 
contract is to be completed by Maj'. 1. 

The new dock will contain 200 ore 
pockets, the original plans having been 
changed recently frotn li)2. It will i,e 
4'J f-et wide. .VJ>2 feet high and 1400 feet 
long, including the end crib. The dock 
proper will be 1350 feet long. It >vili 
have a capacity for 40, 000 tons of Iron 
ore, as against 18.000 tons, the amount 
which the present dock is capable of 

The contract awarded the Barnett .^ 
Record company is for the timljer wor"K 
only and does not include the spouts 
and other appliances or the dredging. 
Complete, including dredging, the esti- 
mated cost of the structure is $260,000. 
The successful bidders rebuilt ore dock 
No. 2 at Two Harijors last winter. The 
new dock will be about the same .'•ize 
as No. 2. having eight pockets less. This 
i.s due to the contour of the shore line, 
which will not permit of boats running 
as far in on one side of the dock as the 

With the new dock completed the Du- 
luth & Iron Range railroad will have 
lacililies for shipping 3.500,000 tons ot 
ore from Two Harbors next season, nnd 
if the ore comes regularly through the 
year it might be possible to handle 3,- 
750.000 tons. There is now every reason 
for believing that this limit will be 
reached, the Oliver Mining company 
being expected to ship from the Ver- 
milion range almost the entire amount 
of the anli( ipated increase. 


Placed In the Hands of the Com- 
niiltce Yesterday. 

The report of Engineer Hoff, the ex- 
pert employed to examine the plans for 
the force main bridge over Tischer's 
creek that wont dt)wn. was placed in the 
hands of the water works committee yes- 
terday. It was slated this morning by a 
member of the committee that evidence 
would be taken Friday and that it was 
expected that the committee would be 
read.v to rep'irt to the council at the next 
regular meeting, which will be held Tues- 
day evening. There lias been a general 
demand that the taking of testimony by 
the ccimmittee be in public In view of the 
general interest felt in the matter, and 
the member of the committee referred to 
said that in liis opinion this plan should 
be adopted. The firm of Engle & Osman 
sa.v that the Milwaukee bridge concern 
that built the bridge, will nave a repre- 
sentative at the hearing If notice is given 
in time. 


A Very "Soft Snap" Turns Ip at the 
Land Office. 

About as easy a specimen as the 
Tnited Slates land ofiicers have heard 
of in some time — and there are lots of 
victims of crookedness among land 
sharks— dropped into the I'nited States 
land office today. Clerk Charles King 
waited on him and the man said: 

"I want my land." 

"Your land?" said Mr. King, in aston- 
ishment. "What land?" 

"I don't know," was the response. 

Mr. King stared at him. "Where is 
your land? What is the description?" 
he finally asked. 

"I don't know." was again the re- 

After some questioning his story came 
out. Some man had run aiross him up 
at Two Harbors and told him that he 
stood in with the land officers here, 
and for .$25 would fix it so that he could 
go down to Duluth and get a valuable 
piece of land. His newly found friend 
was to hold it for him through the 
ofiicers until he came to Duluth to get 
It. The poor victim paid the cash, and 
today he couid not tell the name of the 
man he paid the money to, and had no 
idea of any land on which he wished to 
file. He went away a sadder and pos- 
sibly a wiser man. 


They Were Scheduled to Come Before 
the Court Today. 

The tax cases recently sent up to the 
supreme court from this county, involv- 
ing very important questions, were to 
come up In the supreme court at St. 
Paul today, and County Attorney Ar- 
bury. City Attorney Richards and W. 
G. Crosby, representing the school 
board, were in attendance. County 
Auditor Halden, who went down to 
Minneapolis to attend the meeting of 
the State Auditors* association, re- 
mained over to hear the arguments* in 
the tax cases. These case are of great 
importance, not only because there are 
a large number of them involving large 
sums in taxes, penalties and interest, 
but because of the questions involved 
that it is of importance to settle. The 
principal riuestlon involved is whether 
the independent school district of Du- 
luth has any legal existence or not. 

Chamber Meeting Postponed. 

Owing to the illness of Secretary

poned for cne week. Notices by postal 
as well as in the papers will be sent to

that he will not be able to see during

others who would like to Join, but hopes 
that they vvilll send In their names, or 
call at the r)fflce, so that they can par- 
ticipate in the election of officers for 
next year.

Populist City Committee Said 

to be Ready to Heave 

Him Overboard. 


Is Claimed to Have Slopped 
Over Because of Dis- 

>^^^.^^S^.^t^^%^.^.^M^>/ . 

Meetings of the Democratic and 
Populist city committees have been 
called to the question of the ad- 
visability of holding a convention for 
the coming municipal election. The 
Democrats will meet Friday night at 
Attorney Ilollister's office and the 
Populists tomorrow night at 610 Cham- 
ber of Commerce building. 

It is rumored that other business 
than that stated is on the cards for the 
meeting of the Populist committee. Z. 
H. Austin, it is stated, has allowed his 
disappointment at not getting the of- 
fice of insurance commissioner betray 
him into indulging in bitter invectives 
against his party confreres and treason- 
able utterances in regard to the silver 
cause. These ebullitions have, it is 
said, been occurring in the Twin Cities 
and echoes of them have begun to be 
heard here. He has, it is reported, 
been in a constant and violent state of 
eruption, throwing out uninterrupted 
streams of redht)t lava, as it were, ever 
since he found that he could not serve 
the administration in the capacity he 
desired. For this, it is said, he is to be 
severely disciplined. The committee 
will, it is believed, set Z. H. down in 
the road and drive on and he won't be 
even given a chance t») catch on be- 


Congressman Williams Inti- 
mates That His Flag Talk 
is Balderdash. 

NVashingtno. Dec. 20.— The debate on the 
agricultural bill was signalled by the lirst 
speech in the house on tlie question of the 
annexation of the Philippines. Mr. Wil- 
liams of Mississippi submitted a gen- 
eral argum.nt against their annexation. 
He declared that he was not supersti- 
tious. He did not believe in balderdash. 
W nat had those who asked loudly who 
would pull down the American Hag to 
say of the hag that floated over the 
ramparts of Monterey and the cathedral 
1 f M'xiro? It was hauled down because 
it was ijatriotlc and sensible to haul it 
down. The flag was a mere piece of bunt- 
ing aside from what It represented and a 
man who would appeal to the prejudices 
of the people with a senseless ery about 
hauling down the Hag said something un- 
Worth> of him.seif, no matter how higli 
his s^tation might be. The American people 
should haul down the tlag in the Philip- 
pines he argued, and leave the islands 
where they were the day after the glori- 
ous victory at Manilla.

Porter and Passenger Killed 

In a Collision Caused 

By Fog. 


The Collision Occurred on the 

Pennsylvania Road Near 

Rah way, N. J. 

New York, Dec. 21. — A rear-end colli- 
sion occurred on the Pennsylvania rail- 
road today, three miles from Rahway, 
which resulted in the loss of two lives 
and serious, though not fatal injuri-a 
to four pfersons. The names of the 
killed and injured are: 

Killed; William c. DeWolfe, a clerk in 
th<- accouiitanf s office of the Ohio River 
railroad at Parkersburg. W. V. 

13. Knight, colored, of Jersey City, 
porter of the sleeping car. 

Injured: Mrs. Julia I..evy. Brooklyn; 
siiiiVriUK from .^^hofk. Is scvcrelv but hot 
fatally hurt: H. F. Mead, Brooklyn, left 
lep brokou: P. Ku|)pcr. Brooklyn. .'illKht- 
1> hurt: Prank Irish, traveling passoiiRer 
agent of the Chicago & Northwestern 
lailroad, at Chicago, collar l>one broken. 
J. E. Wtlsh Jerse.N City, a Pullman car 
conduitor, had both legs broken: J. V'an- 
dergrifi, engineer of the second train, 
of Philadelphia, slightly hurl: C. Sanen. 
fireman of the satne train, of Princeton, 
slightly hurt. 

About twenty persons were cut and 
bruised and nearly all the occupants of 
both trains in collision were thrown 
from their berths. 

The collision occurred between train 
No. 10, known as the Chicago and New 
York express, and train No. 6, known 
as the Eastern express. When three 
miles from Kahway, N. J., shortly be- 
fore 7 o'clock, the Chicago and New 
York express was stopped, according to 
its engineer,- by signal. A rather 
thick fog prevailed. The Eastern ex- 
press, coming up from behind at about 
twenty miles an hour, dashed into No. 
10, sending a baggage car off the track 
and crushing into the Pullman 
sleeper Bartholdi, which contained a 
dozen passengers, the Pullman con- 
ductor and colored porter. The en- 
gine of No. 6 did not come to a stop 
until half the sleeping car kind- 
ling wood. The colored porter and a 
passenger were caught up on the top of 
the b(jiler, their bodies twisted by the 
debris and badly mangled. The en- 
gine of No. 6 was badly damaged and 
the tendei- was thn»wn from the track. 
Beyond the smashing of a Southern 
express car alid car platforms, train No. 
6 sustained no other damage and none 
of its palsengers was seriously hurt. 

Previous ^o the collision John Van- 
derveer, the en.gineer of train No. 6. 
and his fireman, jumped off and both 
received scalp wounds. 

Train No. 10 was composed of mail 
and express cars. The Bartholdi was 
the only passenger car it carried. The 
rear baggage car was empty and 
proved but slight impediment to the 
engine f>f No. 6, which forced its way 
through. The pas.sengers in the Bar- 
tholdi were thrown forward amid 
broken woodwork, escaping steam and 
Hying glass. The car toppled over on 
its side and lay slanting against the 
bank. The unhurt pasengers scrambled 
through the windows. 

For two hours two women and two 
men lay pinned down by debri.s, suffer- 
ing from their injuries. It was im- 
pos.sible to get them out until after the 
arrival of the relief train, which came 
about .S:oO. The passengers of both 
trains were brought to New York on 
other trains. The engineer of No. 6 
blames the thi<k fog ff)r the accident. 

neighborhood are reported, and the 
town is growing rapidly. 

The report that sylvanite ore, rioh in 
gold, has been found In the Colorado 
Springs water tunnel that is being 
driven through Pike's Peak, is denied 
by Denos Durfee, the city's engineer on 
the ground. 


The Great Western Will Also Order 
New Box Cars. 

Chicago, Dec. 21.— On account, of the 
constantly increasing traffic of the Chi- 
cago Great Western the company has 
placed a rush order with the Baldwin 

locomotive works for ten large 10-wheel 
engines. Of these one-half are cylin- 
der compound and the other half are 
simple engines. The engines are of 
IGo.OOO pounds' weight and will be cap- 
able of hauling alm<jst any load which 
can be put behind them. They are for 
delivery early in February and the or- 
derwill probably be followed by another

Testimony to That Effect 

Regarding the Accident 

to the Massachusetts. 

New York. Dec. 21.— There Is still twen- 
ty feet of water ill the big dry dock in 
the navy yard supporting the injured bat- 
tleship Massachusetts. Two sets of divers 
worked all day building a cradle, which 
su|>i)orts the entire bottom of the shij). 

The era<lle i.s made partlcularl.v strong 
miner the frames. The supports had been 
pi. iced as far back as amidships last 
evening. Between that point and frame 
No. It) forward the keel was so buckled 
in various siiots tliaU it did not touch 
the keel blocks at all. These facts were 
reported by the divers to Naval Con- 
structor liowles. but he will not make 
his Hnal report until the water has been 
pumped out of the dock. This will not 
i>e for several days. 

The eourt of iiKiuirv held its first reg- 
ular session in the i-ourt-martlal room 
last night. The court consists of Commo- 
dore H. F. Picking, president; Capt. 
James Sands and Capt. P. C. Cooper. 
Llcul. Rus.-<ell is judge advocate. 

Capt. Nicul Ludlov. conimancTer of the 
Massaehusetts, who was the llrst witness 
examined, was asked why he left the navy 
yard at low water. In reply he said thai 
he simply obeyed orders in leaving at 
that time, and that he had been advised 
that there was no danger in going out at 
low tide. In addition to Navv Yard Pilot 
I'.e'.l, he staled that he had Sandy Hook 
Pilot Weaver on board as he had heard 
thi't the outer buoy beyond the Hook 
hail been carried awav and he wished to 
avoid all risks. He testilied that the bat- 
ileshii' was not forced to change her 
course at any time in the entin- trip from 
the n.ivy .vsird to Tomjiltlnsvi'ile and she 
followed the proi)er channels all the wa.\, 
Capt. l..udlow told the board that the 
Massachusetts was going at half speed 
and It was at low elib tide when she 
struck the obstruction, which he be- 
lieved was movable. Between the battery 
and Governor's i.<land, he said, the bat- 
tleship crossed the bows of the Staten 
island ferr.vboat t/astleton, but ihe terry- 
boat, he declared. dl<l not cause the Mas- 
sachusets to chanse her course. Capt. 
Ludlow said that he felt no shock when 
the battliship struck. He concluded his 
testimony Ijy stating that he had no com- 
plaint to make against either of the pi- 
lots or against any of the ship's oflicers. 

Lieut, i'otts, navigating officer of the 
M.issachusetts. corroborated the state- 
mi'Uts of Capt. Ludlow regarding the 
speed and location at the time of tne ac- 
cident. He declared positively that the 
Massachusetts «\;is in the channel at the 
lime. Lieut. Polls also gave it as liis 
opinion ih.-it the battleship ran over a 
movable obstruction and that she dis- 
lodged it. 

Pilot Bells testimony was corrobora- 
tive. He said, in addition, thai the tide 
at the time of the accident was not too 
low for safely. Pilot Weaver and L,leul. 
Commander Schroedi'r also corroborated 
the testimony of the other witnesses. 

The board will meet again and continue 
its liuiuiries. The belief prevails among 
the olllcials at the yard that neither the 
pijots nor the offlcei-s of the shin will 
be held responsible for the aecldent.

Likely to Be a Tribal War 

Over the Choice of 

a King. 

Auckland, N. Z., Dec. 21.— -Vdvicea re- 
<;cived here from Samoa under date of 
L'ec. 16 say there is serious trouble in coii- 
rt<fion with the election of a king to suc- 
C'/ed the late King Malietoa. The suiipoit- 
' r«. of Malafa have become warlike and it 
iy reported that the German consul Is sup- 
p..rring them In spite of the agreement ar- 
I ived at between the consuls to remain 
neutral and allow the chief justice to de- 
ciue upon the question of succession. 

The foreign residents fear there will be 
a;i outbreak of tribal war when the chief 
.icstlce pronounces his decision about the 
end of the year, and they are anxious for 
naval protection. 


A Fire Department Station at Fort

the lire department stations there. Seve- 
ral men and horses were killed and In 

American Coal Taken at Montevideo 
In Large Amounts. 

Washington, Dec. 21. — According to 
C'-nsuI Swain at Montevideo, the United 
Stales has entered upon another and 
important lane in its commercial ex- 
pansion, presenting the greatest possi- 
bilities to a good commodity. He says 
he is gratified to report the fact that 
American coal has come into the River 
Plata In active competition with the 
Welsh coal. Ever since coal has been 
used as a steam making fuel the Eng- 
lish coal yards have had a complete 
monopoly of that market until last 
July, when an American company (the 
Pocohontas company) established itself 
(Ui the River Plata and secured co;i^ 
tracts to the amount of $200,000. The 
consul says that three large cargoes of 
American coal already have arrived 
and been eagerly taken, and he adds 
proudly that "American coal has come 
to stay in these markets."

Will Endeavor to Form One. 

Chicago, Dec. 21.— A special meeting of 
the Western Passenger association will 
be held Jan 10, to consider the draft of a 
new association agreement. This has been 
prepared by a special committee, consist- 
ing of Passenger Traffic Manager Nichol- 
son of the Santa t->. and General Passen- 
ger Agents HoaffonI of the Milwaukee & 
Si. Paul, and Sebastian of the Rock In- 
land. The new agreement is understood 
lo be drawn up on stronger lines than the 
present one. and will, it is hoped, bring 
the outsid' lines into the fold.

Assumes His Duties. 

Canea, Dec. 21.— Prince George of 
Greece, the high commissioner of the 
-.^owers at the bay, today proceeded to his 
post, escorted by the English, French, 
Russian and Italian llagshlps. He was 
saiuied by the forts and welcomed by im- 
mense crowds of people on landing. As 
soon as the jirince was ashore a proce.s- 
sloii was formed and he came here. The

tr<iops. The prince and his party stopped 
oclore the church, where a "Te Deum''

ernment building, where the Cretan lliig 
was hoisted and saluted by the warships. 



Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 21. — A special to

"M. D. Ratchford, before leaving here

Yet the Pottery Combine Will Make 
Larger Profits. 

Pittsburg, Dec. 21.— The work of 
completing the combination of the pot- 
tery companies of the United States, to 
be known as the American Pottery 
company, with a capital of $27,000,000, 
is expected to be consummated in New 
York within the next ten days. Col. 
Taylor, of FJast Liverpool, Ohio, will 
probably be the president of the new- 
combine and the central office will be in 
New York, with branches in Trenton, 
East Liverpool and Pittsburg. It is 
said that prices will not be advanced, 
as present prices are perfectly satisfac- 
tory, but greater profits can be se- 
cured by concentration of efforts and 
cutting down the cost of manufacture 
and distribution.

A Sensational Development 

in the Standard Oil Trust 



Officials Knew They Were to 
Be Ordered to Pro- 
duce Books. 

Cleveland, Dec. 21. — Developments of 
a most sensational nature in the Stand- 
ard Oil investigation came to light to- 
day when Attorney General Monnett 
began taking depositions for the pur- 
pose of proving that the Standard Oil 
company, just previous to the issuance 
of the order by the supreme court that 
the books of the company be produced 
In evidence, had destroyed a large num- 
ber of its books. 

Upon the strength of information le- 
ceived by the attorney general from 
reliable business men and attorneys, 
that It could be proved that the Stand- 
ard Oil company had burned a lot of 
its books, journals, ledgere, and other 
valuable books, the state served notice 
upon the Standard Oil company that 
depositions would be taken before a 
notary in the office of Attorney Harry 
C. Mason in this city. 

During the investigation of the Stan- 
dard Oil trust before Commission'?r 
Brins made a few weeks ago the Stand- 
ard refused to produce its books in 
evidence. The matter was taken to 
the supreme court and on December 
that court ordered the Standard Oil 
company to produce its books covering 
the period from 1892 to 1897, to show 
whether the Standard had paid divi- 
dends during that time to the holders 
of the trust certificates. 

Previous to the decision of the su- 
preme court Virgil P. Kline, attorney 
for the Standard, spent several days 
in Columbus, and it is alleged that he 
received Information beforehand in re- 
gard to the court's decision and at once 
notified the officials of the Standard 
Oil company. 

Attorney General Monnett expects to 
be able to prove that the officials of the 
Standard destroyed their books three 
or four nights before the supreme court 
ordered F. B. Squire, secretary of the 
company, to produce the company a 
books in evidence. 


The Hocking Valley Road Starts the 
Ball Rolling. 

Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 21.— New tariffs 
on coal from the Ohio field went into 
effect today as a result of the action of 
the Hocking Valley in reducing rates 

to meet the competition of the West 
Virginia field. The rate to Columbus is 
cut from 70 to 50 cents per ton, the 
Michigan rate from $1.15 to 95 cents, 
and Chicago and Illinois rates from 
$1.50 to $1.25. The rates will be met by 
competing lines. The supreme court 
decision in the Joint Traffic association 
case disrupted the Ohio Coal Traffic 
association, and rates have been de- 
moralized ever since. A futile effort 
was made to dissuade the Hocking Val- 
ley from making the cut. 


All Doubt as to the Illinois Central 
Is Removed. 

Chicago, Dec. 21.— The Tribune says: 
"All doubts regarding the Illinois Cen- 
tral's entrance into Omaha have been 
removed by recent real estate transac- 
tions in that city. The company has 
obtained an option on a c-onsider.ible 
block of ground in South Omaha, east 
of the present Union Pacific; tracks, 
running in an easterly direction from 
Summit to the Union stock yards. A 
contract has already been signed by 
the Illinois Central to use the new pas- 
senger station being erected by the 
Union Pacific and the use of the Union 
Pacific terminals to South Omaha is 
acepted as a matter of course. All 
signs point toward a close alliance be- 
tween the two roads when the Illinois 
Central extends its lines into Omaha." 


Those In Cuba Temporarily Until 
Independence Is Declared. 

Washington, De<-. 21. — The state de- 
partment has instructed Vice Consul 
General Springer at Havana to proceed 
and close up the affairs of the United 

States consulate general there. The 
consular offices throughout Cuba will 
not be abandoned just now, but will be 
closed temporarily until such time as, 
through the recognition of the indepen- 
dence of the Cubans, it may become 
necessary to resume business through 

The department as yet has taken no 
steps towards reopening the American 
consulates In Spain, and this probably 
will be allowed to wait the exchange 
of ratifications of the peace treaty. In 
the absence of the usual treaties of 
amity and commerce, the status of the 
United States consuls who will be sent 
to Spain will be somewhat indefinite, 
but it is not doubted that they will be 
afforded proper facilities for the dis- 
charge of their duties. 

Curiously enough one at least, and 
IKjrhaps more, of the ITnited States 
consular officers, remained at his post 
throughout the entire war undis- 
turbed. The officer was not an Ameri- 
can citizen, but that in itself would not 
have protected him from the interfer- 
ence of the Spanish officials in the mak- 
ing of his usual reports to the state de- 
partment. Another curious fact is that 
there was received without intermission 
throughout the war. at the navy de- 
partment, a Spanish official naval 
publication, which had been on the ex- 
change list of the department. 

San Francisco. Dec. 21.— Rev. Dr. Ho- 
ratio Stebbins. who was reported dying 
of heart failure yesterday, is slightly im- 
proved today. There is no immediate an- 
ticipation of his death.

in the cit.v. brings further conlirmalion 
of the wonderful pay str>'ak discovered 
in the shaft of the ^i!kado mine. It was 
iirst annoum-fd that rich ore chute was 
two f'lt wide an<l forty f'''et higli but 
Air, Bowman, editor of the Miner, who 
arri\ed in the city yesterrlay, says the 
strike is much richer than at first sup- 
l><>s.'d. The vein has wiilened out as the 
men have jirogresseil and is at the pres- 
I'lit stage of the work eleven feet wide, 
making it one of the most marv<'lous 
linds in the records of gold mining. It ■>nlv b«-«-n <^i|iuill»'d, ivvent.v mining

^AY£ the; BABV! 

A mother will risk her 
ov.*n life many times 
over, to save her babe 
from the horrors of hy- 
drophobia. There are 
grraver perils from which 
a tnothcr should protect 
her child. A luad dogr is 
a rarity, but thousands 
of chilclren die daily be- 
cause of the seeds of 
disease implanted in 
r little bodies be- 

A woman may in- 
sure the health of 
her babe if she 
sees to it that she 
is thoroughly 

strong and 
healthy in a wo- 
manly way dur- 
ing the period of 
gestation. Dr. 
Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures all 
weakness and disease of the delicate and 
important organs that sustain the burden of 
maternity. It makes them strong, healthy, 
vigorous and clastic. It banishes the 
squcami.ih spells of the expectant period 
and makes baby's introduction to the world 
easy and nearly painless. It rids maternity 
of peril. It insures the newcomer's health 
and an ample supply of nourishment. It 
transforms sickly, nervous, fretful, despond- 
ent, childless women into healthy, happy, 
helpful, amiable wives and mothers. Over 
90,000 women have tcstiiicd to the benefits 
derived from this marvelous medicine. It 
docs away with the necessity for the em- 
barrassing examinations and local treat- 
ment upon which mo.-^t physicians insist. 
It substitutes certainty for the doubtful 
treatment of obscure physicians, who sel- 
dom correctly diagnose these troubles. All 
medicine dealers sell it, .and Dr. Pierce will 
cheerfully give free advice to ailing women 
who write him. 

Scores of women who have been perma- 
nently cured of obstinate and dangerous 
diseases by this great medicine, have 
permitted their names, addresses, expe- 
riences .and photographs to be printed in 
Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical .\d- 
viser. This book is free and contains i(X)8

Xitiiel in the slot machines .=<eem to 
be doing a land ofTuv business in West

offer money prizes to winnei**; who in- 
vest in them are in operation, and one 
of thezn, it is said, raises off as high as

gambling instinct in some young men 
to a remarkal)le degree, and jne at 
least of those who have formed the 
habit of playing them has got m to 
trouble as a result of it. He was em- 
ployed as a collector, and in making his 
r 'unds wotild drop a nick^ in every slot 
that presented itself. The inevitable 
icsult was that he soon failed to dis- 
criminate between his own and Ids em- 
ployer's nickels. His investments 
continued to increase, until finally he 
had used more of the money did 
not belong to him than he abie to 
leplace. ColUctiims which he made he 
tailed l,> report, and a tew days ago h\< 
employer lejirned of certain cidleetions 
wliich he had made and neglect^'d to 
ivi'ort. Invv'stigalioii dis. losed uiaio 
others, and the young man was ilis- 
cliarged. AH of his misfortunes ar<> at- 
tributable" to his weakness for tlropping 
t\eiy nickel he could gel his hands on 
into illusive slot machines. The cas»» 
has not bvt n lepoi'ted to tlie police, anii 
an effort is being made to keej* it from 
the public. jtresumably to give the 
young man an opportunity to make

On this roadbed it is proposed to run a 
vehicde *!<l feet in leiiKth. 12.5 feet wide, 
and li") fc-et hish. The wheels, resting o'l 
the rails under water, are to i>e ci^liiy 
feet in diameter. These will support the 
ixintoon, to which the filatform will be 
attached by suitable framinj? and truss 
work. 11 is to be propelled by an engine 
ioeatol on the platform and will be 
worked either by sieam or electricity. 
This will operate a tiriim. over which \\i'i 
chain is to wind, and thus flraw the pi. it- 
form and submerge*! carrragre from one 
side of the channel i<i the other. 

The principle seems simple, but the v - 
suits would be marvellous. The platform, 
as designed, would be larpe enough l'> 
take several railroad trains at once, i'lid 
to ace .inmi.idaie si;veral hundrerl jiasseii- 
gei.s, not to mention teams and Ijagga^je. 
'I'erminals would be provided on either 
end, lo allow the easy handling <tf large 
MUuntilies of freight ai^d lr:;ffie. The car 
will l)e lilted with a searchlight and sig- 
nals similar to ihose carried by steamers, 
and great pains will be taken to rend r 
the \'oyage by rail comfortable and a de- 
light lo the traveling public. 

Saloons will be heateil and lighted i)y 
electricity, sm'jking rooms ■will be prcj- 
vided. and it is believed the trip can be 
made in .i little over an h'lur without dis- 
turbing those who have retired in sleeping 
car berths in France not lo awaken u:r. i!

A decline of '.jfr-^d at Liverpool, fairly

were h«^arish features* of the- news, but 
owing to the exirorao dullness any little

tive when the turning point of the day 
was clo.sely approaching. The acllvitv 
was f.ccompanied by advancing prices 
and tiie ."^light decline the market started 
with was easily recovered from and a 
luindsome addition was soon tacked on to 
the previous day's closing prices. Bullish- in corn was the first incentive to the 
rise in wheat, but there Wt-re others. The 
I.ivt'ri>ool market did not improve auv .ind 
Antwerp was Muoled 12'j centimes lower,

2."> centimj'S for December wheat ami 2tt 
centimes rise for January-April. The 
comparison between this day's primary 
Western rei»ipts and those "of the cor- 
resjxniding da.y of last year was one of 
the fealur«'s of the iiay"s news to encour- 
age purchasing, amounting as thev did 
to l.KKt.iHKi bus against oidy mih.imki a" year

Investment Buying Has Become 
Apparent in the Wheat Market. 

Tlu- l>!iily Commercial Record in its 
weekl.y review of the market says; 

The long expected Investment buying 
of wheat was apjvarent in the market last 
we^-k. iind tri that cause alone is due the 
;:dvance of .May wheat to •'i7'«c on Friday 
last. How lon.g this buying will continue, 
and what pn>i>Mrtions it will reach is hard 
to say. in fact the wheat market at pres- 
ent is one of sentiment, speculative senti- 
ment. As the wheat supply has caught 
tip with the demand, and while stocks no- 
wh'-re are large, thev suffice with tlie 
daily receipts to keep the demand supplied 
and add a little every week to t\ie visible. 
The visible this week iiureaseil 3.S0u.fiO0 
bushels. Some of last week's strength 
in wheat was without doubt due to the 
strength in other grains and provisions. 

The entire country is bullish on corn, 
the price for May corn is ;ioc. the price of 
May oats is around 27e and i>f .May rve in 
Chicago Kc. Pork products of all kinds 
are strong and advancing with all these 
factors present, coupled with cheari 
money, aufl a broadening siieculation it 
would not be surprising to see wheat re- 
main strong and jKissibly advance. And 
on the other hand is the absolute certain- 
ty fif ample supi)lies for the year, with 
the knowletige that the higher the price 
the faster it will l>e rushe<l to market. 

A recent issue of Beerbohm's Commer- 
cial Trade List gives details of the world's 
crop of wheat for 1S9S. showing the total 
to have been 2.Vi*i.iiO i.oiio bushels. The 
maximum .vearl.v c-onsumption is esti- 
mated at not over 2..V;o,ii»n(.(i00 bushels, 
thus giving a clear surplus of 24it.fNKi.ij00 
bushels, a large part of which would nat- 
ntally go to re|dete the reserves which 
were drawn on to help out the short crop 
of 1S97 which is placed at 2.2»i4,nO(.».(it»n bush- 
els. The estimate for IVts includes the 
Aigentine eroj) which was harvested near- 
ly a year ago. and the succeeding crop of 
that I ountrv will again be on the market 
shortly to be foll.iwed by the Indian cn'ip, 
and it in turn to b" followed b.v the spring 
-hipments frfun Russia. The .\rgenline 
crop promises as large as last vear at 
least. Russian spring shipments will be 
•iin to fhe average. AI>out the Indian crop 
little !s known, except that the average 
sse^-ded is large.

••Onkle Henry" Zeigenheim of St. 
Louis and His Ways. 

The lord mayor of St. Louis, "Oukle 
Henry" Zeigenheim. is an old anfl iiiter- 
I'sting person. A giant in stature, good- 
nalured disposition, shrewd mind ami im- 
hounded ambition, he has lifted himself 
into prominence by his force of charac- 
ter. .Mmost entirel.y without education, 
he is proud of his illiteracy, and boasts 
of his "plain ways." which, of course, 
takes with certain classes of jx'ople and 
gives him great influence among voters 
of similar condition. 

"I could hire plenty of men to wrlti- 
speeches for me. " he snys. "but I won't 
do it. What I say comes from the heart. 
and I mean it. I don't have to pay no 
money for line words, ' and he exempli- 
ties the principle. 

"They all done noble," he declared, in 
a recent speech of welcome to the return- 
ing soldiers. "Botli the army and the 
navy done noble, and Dewey he went the 
whole hog before breakfast." 

His honor made money at the trade of 
carpenter and builder, and became 
president of a savings bank which is 
largely patronized by mechanics. Then 
he went into politics as a disciple of 
Chauncey 1. Filley. He shows his prefer- 
ence for that gentleman by wearing a broad-brimmed chimney pot hat. 
which Mr. Filley always aff»-cted. but h:is 
rec-ently became greater than his m;ister 
and has taken into his own liands tlie 
bossing of the Republican machine. A 
nominating convention held yesterday 
demonstrated his political power, fo'r 
after a determined fight between the fac- 
tions he named every candidate upon the 
county ticket, and now aspires to be th(^ 
Republican leader of the state. 

Mr. Zeigenheim won the api)lause of 
"the plain people " recently by declining 
to wear ,1 dress suit at the great annual 
ball. The regul.itloiis of file entertain- 
ment ie<iuii.d that all the guests should 
aiMH-ar in full dress, and "Onklc Henrv " 
allowc.<l himself to lie shut out. 

"My father came to St. Louis in 1826." 
he told me today, "when it was a village 
of X(»(i pcfiple, and my family has been 
here ever since. He stopped at Chicago 
on his wa.\- West, but <lidnt like the 
place. I think if I had been in his place 
an<l knew as much .is I do now. I should 
have stayed there and bought the whole 
situation. But St. Louis is a good 
enough tow"n for me. The folks has made 
mayor, and I ain't going back on 



Even queens, it appears, do not care 
to be portrayed in a way which makes 
them look older than they really are. 
says the New York Tribune. 

Some new Dutch pcstage stamiw; of 
the denoininatlon of 1. 2V2 and 5 gulden, 
lesiiectively. which wer». jssueil to com- 
memorate Wilhelinina's accession to 
the throne of Holland, liave been with- 
drawn, it is reported, because the 
young ruler is not pleased with the iiic- 
fucr of hfrr.self upon thetn. 

With her hair drawn tightly up from 
fhe sides and at the back, and mussed 
near the top of her head, she certain- 
ly does apiH'ai- more like a woman of 
:'.*» than a girl of IS. 

Perhaps the photographer was 
fault, but wherever the blame lies 
fhe royal wish that the stumps be 
called. This sudckii stopping of the 

it is 
sue is likely to make the specimens 
scarce, and a hint of this is already 
arousing the collectors. 

In view of the fad that Wilhrlmina 
now objects to having; her subjects 
think her too old. it is interesting to re- 
call that just six years aRo phe was 
Worried lest they shouhl believe hpr

The Instructions to Be Sent 

to Gen. Otis at 




The Filipinos Will Be Assured 

of Justice, Peace and 


Washington. Dec. 21. — At todays 
cabinet meeting Secretary Hay was tlio 
only absentee. Immediately on as- 
sembling the president stated to the 
members who did not accompany him 
on his trip S'luth that he had decided 
to appoint our present ambassador to 
Russia, Hon. Ethan Allen Hitchcock, as 
secretary of the interior, to succeed Mr. 
Bliss, who retires from that office upon 
the qualification of Mr. Hitchcock, 
which is expected to take place some 
time in February next. The member.s 
who were i)ersonally acquainted with 
Mr. Hitchcock sr»oke or liim in the 
highest terms, and all agreed that the 
selection was an admirablt> one. 

The cabinet iliscussed the instruc- 
tions to be sent Gen. Otis at Manilla, 
which will be promulgated there as a 
proclamation by the president. These 
instructions are similar in import to 
those sent to our officers at Santiago 
upon the occupation of that city i)y 
rnited States troops. They assure the 
F'llipinos that the I'nited" States as- 
sumes military control of the PhlMp- 
|)ines in a spirit of peace and friendship, 
and that all civil rights and privileges 
that they heretofore have enjoyed will 
be continued, and that it is the pur- 
I)ose of this government to relieve, in 
all possible ways, the unjlist !)urdens 
they have borne, and asks for the co- 
operation of all good citizens in main- 
taining order to the end that peace and 
prosperity may be restored. So far as 
is practicable, all efficient civil r)fficers 
will be retained in the official positions 
they now occupy, and fair and impar- 
tial justice will be administered to all. 

It has been decided not to give out the 
text of the instructions to Gen. Otis till 
about the time of their arrival in Man- 
illa, which will ^)e a month hence. The 
instructions also make temporary ar- 
rangements for coasting trade, much 
as in the case of Cuba. 

The cabinet also decided that the ex- 
isting conditions justified a further re- 
duction of the military forces of the 
United Slates, and the secretary of war 
was instructed to arrange for the im- 
mediate muster out of 50,000 volunteers. 
The details for the execution of this 
order have not yet been arranged, and 
it is imfjosslble as yet to ascertain what 
organizations will be first selected for 
discharge from the military service. 
Several of the volunteer organizations 
in the Philippines undoubtedly will be 
included in the number.

Its Stock Is Divided lip Among Three 

New York, Dec. 21. — It is announced 
on Wall street that the Chicago & Al- 
ton Railway company has been sold to 
the Union Pacific. Missouri Pacific and 
Baltimore & Ohio interests. The first 
named is said to be in the majority. It 
is said that the sale was made at 17.') 
for the stock. The personnel of the men 
supposed to be interested is not men- 

When asked regarding this report, 
George Gould, president of the Mis- 
souri Pacific, refused to talk. 

IC. H. Harriman of the executive com- 
mittet of the I'nion Pacific is authority 
for the statement that negotiations for 
the p'lrchase of the Chicago & Alton rail- 
way are not yet c«»mpleted. He intimated 
that all negofiations are in his haiuls aiiu 
it is likely the matter will be closed be- 
f-rre lontr. Any positive statement .is to 
the j'.cMuirement of the Alton road by th« 
interests named, he said, is premature. 

Chicago. Dec. 21.— President T. H. Hlack- 
stone of thf Chi<-na;<i & Alton road today 
denied any knowledge of the reported sale 
of the Alton road to the Union Pacific, 
Missouri Pacific and Baltimore & Ohio 

John J. Mitchell was seen by an 
clated Press reporter, but would neither 
affirm nor deny the rumor "I have noth- 
Ins to say at present," wa.s his answer 
to a i|Uestion for information. 


Friends Across the Bay Think 

Duluth Is Getting Uneasy 


The Siperior Leader tmlay contained 
the following; "According to the hopes 
chcrishe<l by some Duluth grain men, Jim 
Hills 3,C<iO,uOO bushel steel elevator may 
possibly be built on that side of the oay 
instead of at Sui)erior. The reason 4l\ en 
for this proposed alteration in the plans 
of the 'wizard' i.s that he feels somewh.ii 
•leery' of building In Superior while I'ur. 
is a possibility that the Sui>erlor board 
of trade may t.ike a notion to enforce the 
\\"isconsin inspection upon him. He Is 
holding off. they claim, imtil he receiV'?s 
satisfactory assurance from this side thit 
there Is no such plan on foot. 

"Superior grain men think that they 
•smell a rat' in this feeler thrown out 
ovei there. They do not believe it at a;i 
necessary to give any such assurance lo 
Mr. Hill, but at the same time, thev 
say that they recognize the fact as v.e'l 
a;- does Jim llill that the insi>eetion c.m- 
noi be changed at present and the ii>:'a! 
grain men will be the last to Instlgatr- -iny 
^ucll move at this time, or for some time 
tf» come. It is .said that the Duluth bcarl 
<It>es not feel secure, however, and ii 
will at the coming Wisconsin leyjslaiiiie. 
try lo have the troubleisoirie laws rna'ive 
to the inspection repealed. " 

fhp above item evidently was born in 
sf we one's imagination. No iine here 
seems to know of any movement to re- 
{.ea' the Wisconsin inspection laws and If 
any has been started It Is more likely to 
have 'oj'gun with the elevator men them- 
selves. All of the men who have byilt 
elevators across the bay have always 
been uneasy for fear the present lnst)ec- 
tion may be tampered with. If such <i 
movement ;ias been started the Supesior 
people. It Is said here, might find Jim Hll! 
to be not very far from the source.

Writing Expert Testifies In the 
Poisoning Case Today. 

San Francisco. Dec. 21. — Carl Eisen- 
schimniel, the writing expert, was the 

first witness called in the Botkin case 
today. He continued his testimony of 
yesterday, comparing the writing of 
Mrs. Botkin with the anonymous letters 
sent Mrs. Dunning and the note en- 
closed in the box of candy. The wit- 
ness was satisfied that Mrs. Botkin was 
the writer of all the letters in the case. 



The General Testifies Before 

the War Investigating 



Finds a Great Many Flaws in 

the Management of 

the War. 

Washington, Dec. 21.— Lieut. Col. Mlley. 
(Jen. Shaffer's chief of staff, testified be- 
fore the war invi»stlgatlng commission to- 
day concerning the Santiago campaign, 
largely following the lines of Gen. Shaff- 
er's testimon.v yesterday. Col. Mlley said 
that while the expeditionary fleet were 
l.ving at Tampa prior to the start, the 
troops were given every facility for bath- 
ing and shore privileges. He told the po- 
sitions of the lines of the two armies be- 
f.ire Santiago and the Spanish lines were 
so conspicuous there was no necessity for 
any reconnolsance In force to determine 
them. He sakl there was no doubt that 
there were Spanish sharpshiMJters be- 
tween the Spanish and American lines, 
bill he was unable to find a single instance 
'if Spanish sharpshooters tiring on our 
hospitals in the rear of their firing on our 
Hanks. He spoke of the 2-mile range of 
the Spanish rilles and, describing the Am- 
erican position on San Juan hill, said it 
wouU! have been far more dangerous for 
the men to have been a half mile nearer 
than to remain where thev did. 

(ieii Miles took the stand next. 
•Are jou willing to be sworn'.'* he was 

"I think." was the reply, "that I can 
say v.liat I have to say without being 

un. Miles fortified with a large 
I)ackage of papers and had his own sten- 
ographer. He gave his evidence in u 
cltar. unhesitatnig way and went into 
details lefiarding both the Santiago and 
Porto Uican expeditions. He opened by 
desiiiblnp the railroad confusion in get- 
ting the war munitions to Tampa, point- 
ed to the lack of government storchoust 
f;'cilities thert and said the cars at one 
time were held back as far as Columbia, 
S. C. He said when the transports were 
l<Mded it was found imntisslble to i)ut 
more than l.j.OtKj men on board and the 
men were made as comfortable as possi- 
ble. It was fortunate he said '•that the 
transports had good weather. If they had 
c'lcountered a severe storm the loss ot 
life, or the siilTering at least must h.ive 
b't-n fearful. As it was. with fair weather, 
the men below, crowded in with tht 
mules and suiiplies, could get on deck, 
which would have betn Impossible other- 

Tile commlssar.v stores taken, he .said. 
Wire sufficient, but the medical supplies 
were inadequate. He had left the load- 
ing, except for general directions, to the 
<orps conimander, Gen. Shafter. He 

found just before sailing that there weit 
a Muinber of pontoon boats being taken 
which would be iitterl.v useless for the 
I'urpose and he himself had secured two 
barges from the owners there and had 
taken other steps, but the supplies of 
such boats taken was very lnade<iuate. 

"The expetlitlon. " he continued, 

•'should have been furnished launch 
es. naphtha or steam, or tugs, for tow- 
ing bargt's from th»' ships lo the shore. 
v\ e relied largely on the engineer <»fflcers 
and tile engir.eer d|>artment8 for these. 
In tin second expeditti>n to Porto KIco 
thesf were furnished, but they arrived 
too late to render much assistance." 

He said before the first fleet sailed from 
Tampa estimates had been definitely made 
of the number of boats to be furnished 
the transports and the number to be fur- 
nished by tne navy to assist. The most 
c()rdlal assistance, he added, had been 
promised on th • part of the navy. At San- 
tliigo I he supply of tentage and focKl was 
very limited. 

"Were the medical supplies at that time 
sufRch nt for the needs of the command?" 
he was asked. 

In rei)ly he read a dispatch from Gen. 
Shaft* r i>n -Aug. 4, whlcli referred to a 
"chronic sc ircity of medicines. " and that 
four men had just died from lack of m«'di- 
cines. There was. at no time, said Gen. 
Miles, sufficient medicine for the troops. 
He remembered seeing one train for the 
sick in a drenching rain with no covering 
over the wagt>ns. He had taken measures 
personally to correct matters and on .-Vug. 
12 had telegraphed for a well-equipi)ed 
corps of pier and bridge bulblers, etc., and 
had ordered disease infected places 

Gen. Miles said the transportation facili- 
ties were used to carry supplies to some 
15. (XI or •_'n,niH» refugees from Santiago and 
about 5(XHi Cuban troops. "This." he stated 
in answer to a <iuestion. "was not expect- 
ed because I hud cautioned Gen. Shafter 
to keep his men out of the Spanish build- 
ings of every character and to keep the 
men away from the natives. Had he not 
done as he did the army would have been 
much belter supplied." 

His army in Porto Rico, he said, had 
been supplied in a way with the quar- 
termaster's and commissary stores, but 
not in the best way. At Porto Rico he 
had asked that li.xed rations be sent, 
but instead they were sent down in 
bulk, without invoicing or bills of lad- 
ing. In many instances stores were 
spoiled in the hold and thrown away. 
This caused great embarrassment and 
loss of ptores and depiived the troops 
r)f food. He asserted that the scarcity 
of food largely caused the distress of 
the troops. He had advi.sed against the 
shipping of beef to Porto Rico, both 
because there was abundance of it on 
the island as well as because of his be- 
lief that it was defective. He charac- 
terized the refrigerator beef, of which 
there was 327 tons sent, as •'embalmed 
beef" and said the canned fresh beef, 
of which 198,000 pounds had been 
shipped too. was condemned by of- 
ficers whose commands used it. 

"Who fixed that beef as an army 

••You'll have to ask someone here in 
Washington. You had better ask the 
secretary of war or the commissary 
general. It was sent as a food. If they 
had not taken that they would have had 
to go hungry. If they had sent pay- 
masters down there, as I asked, we 
could have bought food. l>ut they did 
not do that." 

(Jen. Miles suggested that the food 
%vas sent to his large army under pre* 
tense at an experiment. 


Broom Manufacturers Make That 
Excuse For Raising Prices. 

Chicago, Dec. 21. — Hereafter brooms 
will cost 2 cents more apiece. Mem- 
bers of the Broom Manufacturers' as- 
sociation of the United States met here 
today and by a unanimous vote decided 
to advance the price of brooms 25 cents 
a dozen. An increase of 50 cents was 

strongly urged, but 25 cents was decid- 
ed on finally. The opinion was ex- 
pressed, however, that an additional 
advance was certain to be made within 
the next few weeks. There is said to 
be a serious shortage in broom corn 
and this is given as the reason for the 

According t<j a statement issued by 
the association today, the low prices 
have caused farmers to .almost cease 
growing broom corn and the crop this 
year is fully 50 per cent short in con- 
sequence. The following officers were 
elected: President, ■William F. Lang, 

Pittsburg; vice president, Clinton R. 
Lee. Lincoln; secretary and treasurer, 
Charles Manzelman, Detroit. 


Testimony as to Burning of 

the Standard Oil Trust 


Cleveland, Dec. 21.— The taking of de- 
positions to prove Attorney General 
Monnett's allegations in the Standard 
Oil trust investigation was commenced 
before Henry C. Mason today. The 
most Important witness produced was 
John Darmstetter, of No. 13 Center 
court, a rabbi of a Bohemian church. 

Rabbi Darmstetter testified that one 
evening three or four weeks ago he 
went Into the .'saloon of E. H. Pollock 
at No. 131 Croton street to see Pollock, 
who is an official of his church. He 
said that at the time Pollock was wait- 
ing upon several Bohemian laborers, 
who were employes of the Standard Oil 
company, and he sat down till the 
saloon keeper got through with his 

Darmstetter said that one of the 
men in the saloon was quite hilarious 
and was asked, '•Why are you fellows 
doing so much treating?" 

Two of the men then engaged in a 
conversation and, flashing a roll of bills, 
said that they had got some stuff work- 
ing overtime. One of them, who was a 
teamster, .said that he and another 
teamster had loaded up a lot of books 
at the Euclid avenue oftice of the Stand- 
ard Oil company and had tak^n them lo 
the company's furnaces, where they 
were burned. 

Attorney General Monnett secured 
the residence and name of one of the 
drivers and when a constable went to 
subpoena him today the man-* < x- 
claimed: •'My job is gone if I have 
lo testify." 

Another of the teamsters of the 
Standard Oil company, when informed 
that he would probably be called upon 
to testify, is reported to have said: 
■•They can't catch me. What we took 
were boxes and I can't tell what they 

Rabbi Darmstetter, when placed ui^on 
the witness stand, was very unwilling to 
testify, saying that if he did so it would 
injure the members of his congregation, 
many of whom were employes of the 
Standard Oil company. 

The depositions of five other witnesses 
were taken today, but nothing important 
was brought out. 

An effort was made to subpoena E. H. 
Pollock, the saloon keeper, today, but 
he was said to be out of the city, or at 
least could not be found. One of the 
teamsters who is claimed to have taken 
the Standard company's books to th? 
furnaces, will testify late this after- 

Frank Rockefeller, L. H. Severance 
and F. H. Squire have been subpoenaed 
as witnesses.

St. I.ouis Dec. 21. — An attempt was

ier Testimony Confirms the Suspi- 
cions Against Rollinger. 

Chicago. Dec. 21.— Lena Hecker, the 
girl who was formerly employed in 
Rollinger's restaurant on Milwaukee 
avenue, appeared at police headquar- 
ters today and told of her relations 
with Rollinger. The police believe her 
statements give a motive for the crime 
which Rollinger is accused of. that of 
murdering and partly cremating his 
wife. According to Miss Hecker. Rol- 
linger always reiiresented himself as 
a single man. and when Miss Hecker 
discovered that he had a wife and 
daughter she gradually broke off rel.a- 
tions with him. This made Rollinger 
angry and soon after, according to Miss 
Heiker. Rollinger began to mistreat 
his wife and several times accused her 
of being too careless with the lamp she 
WHS accustomed to carry around the 



Albert Nelson's Poor Attempt 
Murder and Suicide. 

Chicago, Dec. 21.— Albert Nelson to- 
day shot Mrs. Aggie J ihnson three 
times and then cut his own throat. Both 
have changes of recovery. Jealousy is 
said to have ben the motive. Mrs. 
Johnson sepaiated from her husband 
some time ago, and since then Nelson 
has been paying her attention. 

A Dwelling Burned. 

A .small dwelling at Twenty-ninth 
avenue west and Third street, occupied 
l)y a family named Sopjar, was de- 
str<iyed by lire this morning at 6:.'?0 
o'clock. The value of the edifice is 
estimated at about $800. The occupants 
had Insurance on their furniture to the 
amount of $400, which Is ample to cove: 
I heir hiss. The fire Is supposed to have 
been caused liy a defective chimney. 
The location of the building is such a 
distance from where water connection 
could be made that the department was 
unable to get a stream on the fire until 
too late to be of any avail.

Glimpses of the Negro on Duty In 
Field and Camp. 

What doubt there may have lurked 
concerning the qualities of the Ameri- 
can negro as a lighting .st)ldier has been 
swept away by the magnificent con- 
duct of all the colored troops. Infantry 
and cavalry, when led into fire by their 

white olHcers.. The quality of the lead- 
ership may be inferred from the heavy 
r:oportion of losses am(jng the officers. 
The gallant Twenty-fourth alone lost 
40 per cent of its officers in the charge 
on El Caney. The losses among the 
men were almost equally heav^-. This 
was the same regiment which after- 
ward furnished eighty volunteer nurses 
for the yellow fever hospital at Sibor>ey, 
and when fifty-five of these had been 
.-^t liken down, replaced them by fifty- 
five nune. 

How same troops would have 
Ix'haved withoUi the inspiration of 
iheir white leaders must remain an 
iipen quesition. A:- an experiment, i 
fancy it would scarcely be worth try- 

Those who insist that the fights o! 
tho.<e days were soldiers' battles, 
meaning battles in which strategy anid 
lea'icrship counted for little, must give 
coloied soldiers their due in the achieve- 
ment of victory. One of the English- 
men serving with us, I recollect, who 
had watched the conduct of our black with professional curiosity, 
reached the conclusion thait they were 
iust as good as some of tne best native 
regiments in India, an>d commented on 
the fact that these troops invariably do 
better when led, in part aJt least, by 
ificers of their own color and blood. 

Our colored soldiery certainly con- 
tained many men who showed them- 
selves possessed of >the first and most 
important instinct of leadership. I re- 
call the feat of one darky — a color ser- 
geant of the Tenth cavalry, I believe. 
In the charge on San Juan hill, he 
I an led the guidon of his troop, and was 
ordered by his captain to keep near 
liim. hi Iding the guidon fiag aloft where 
it would be well in view. From that 
time on the cai>tain and all the ftllow- 
ing tr< opers found It hard to keep up 
with their guidon, plunged ahead 
through the high spear grass, uj) the 
.^-leep hill, straight for the pitiless 
Spanish fire from the hilltops. When 
the old sergeant reached the crest of 
the hill, together with the first of the 
Koiigh Riders, he waved his tattered 
red and white guidon aloft as an en- 
couragement to his fellow troopers, and 
he stood there with his little flag, his 
ligiiie clearly silhouetted on the ridge, 
until the inevitable happened, and he 
fell wounded twice. For this act of 
conspicuous gallantry this particular 
colored soldier was recommended by 
his superiors for an honorable men- 
tion. Had he been one of us, he would 
have been promoted to a lieutenancy 
on the spot. 

••You know how funny niggers can 
be. Well, he was the funniest coon I 
ever seen. When he saw 'that damned 
sharp-slux)ter a-niroppin' from the 
mango tree, all legs and arms, he just 
up and begins a-prancln' and a-dancin' 
tdl I guessed he was going to do the 
cake w-alk right there. Then he kind of 
shuffles up to the dead man in the grass 
and sort o' sings to himself: "You sure 
enough dead man. You nevah skyar 
thi's niggah jio mo". You shoot no mo' 
white sojei-s und gen'lmen off'cers. You 
g(KKl fo' nuffin' but buzzard birds!" 
And with that he kicked the Spaniard's 
•urcass till I got tiretl of his antics and 
pulled him away, back to our lines." 

The man who told this experience 
was a Southerner of old Southern stock. 
It was a Virginian who cx>niftded to me 
that he was glad enough after the 
charge on San Juan to crawl under the 
same blanket with a ••nigger" ai>d to 
share his hardtack with him. 

There were many more among us who 
might have made the same confession. 
One of the traits that the colored sol- 
dier seerned to possess in a highet; de- 
gree than his white comrades was gen- 
erosiity. Anybody that wore a blue 
shirt or a cartridge lielt was hail-fel- 
low-well-met with him. and there ap- 
peared to be absolutely nothing that he 
would not share with others, from his 
poncho to the hvst morsel of hardtack. 

Another distinguishing tralit was his 
invariable good humor. Where others 
cursed he laughed and cracked jokes, 
and even the wounded among them 
were apt to roll their eyes and smile 

pathct'irally if you asked th<^m about 
their wounds, ^v'hen there was an up- 
set along the ro id and everybody felt 
culled upon to cjntribute his share of 
highly spiced i rofanity the colored 
team.sters, who vere the butt of it all, 
apiieared to dei ive the utmost enjoy- 
ment out of tht situation. 



For a time there was no sound except 
that of their two hearts beating as one. 
I'inally she broke the silence. "I think, 
George. " she said, •'that you'd better 
speak to papa tonight." "But, dearest," 
he protested, "he seems exceptionally 
cross tonight. " "True," she admilied. 
"but he Is also exceptionally tired." From 
the standpoint of safety he realized then 
that the occasion was one not to be lost.

ed stocks iv'ing shov\ n on their coun- 
ters and shelves. Johnson & Moes stock

mas buyers from all parts of the city

P. L. Johnson, the leading cash grocer 
of the West End. offers an especially 
nice line of groceries and nick-nacks 
for the holiday trade. Having estab- 
lished the strictly cash system about 
two years ago. they are enabled to sell 
groceries at much lower prices than 
previously, a fact which is appreciated

of years of faithful, honest catering to 
the trade. The next three days prom- 
ises to be record breakers in the history 
of West End holiday shopping trade. 

Found on the Knowlton Near 

the IMass In Ontonagon 


News has ome down from Ontonagon 
county of a wonderful discovery on the 
Knowlton. which is a part of the .Vd- 
venture property and controlled by 1,hat 
company, says the Marquette Mining 

S-jecimens of the rock which have 
beea sent down from there are fairly !m. 
pregnated with copper. Local authori- 
ties who have seen them pronounce 
them surprisingly rich. 

Benjamin Chynoweth. the oldest min- 
ing man in the district, is quoted as 
saying that it is the biggest thing hp 
ever saw opened up in copper. 

Buying orders for Adventure went 
thick and fast over the wires Fridny 
and Saturday. There were a number of 
orders for lOOO-share blocks from peo- 
ple in Ontonagon county, who are righr 
on the ground and who ought to know 
what they are buving. 

The opening in which the fiml has 
been made is describe*! as a tunnel into 
the side of a ravine. There is no shaft 
at all. The specimens which have been 
received here are .said to have come out 
in the very llrst lilast. Dirt on the sur- 
face of the rock gives evidence that this 
is true. 

It is not only the holders of Adventurf^ 
who are jubilant over the find, but the 
holders of the new Mass Consolidated 
stock as well. The reason for their 
gratification is found in the fact that 
the Knowlton adjoins Mass on the west. 
The fiiends of the latter stock assert 
that the new find cannot help but be a 
favorable factor for them. 

Since the appointment of Thomas F. 
Cole to the general management of this 
mine many words of commendation 
have been expressed on account of the 

Mr. C">le's appointment is said to have 
strengthened the position of Mass stock. 
His friends in the iron liusiness felt 
i-onfident that he would not associate 
himself with a property of small valut-. 
By his association with the Mass they 
Were led to have ctjniidence in the prop- 
erty and subscribed liberally for tht-

Hdughton — Assfssmcnls are v>-ry 
often preceded by rumors to that effect, 
and when the drop in Arnold Friday 
was followed by advices that Boston 
gossip had it connected with a $2 as- 
sessment, the statement was generally 
accepted as correct. Added to this is 
the fact that Superintendent Clark lefi 
for Boston on Thursday's train. It is 
quite likely the Arnold will call an 
assessment, as the company's treasury 
fund must be veiy low, if not depleteii. 
The expenditures in equipping the mine 
and mill were, of course, enormous.

curious manner at thi- Santo Spirito hos- 
pital at Rome. All attempts to communi- 
cate the disease to animals had failed. 
when a patient mi the hospital volunteeii d 
to have the experiment tried on liimself. 
He was exposed to the gnats, developed 
til*' fever, his blood showing malariii i>a- 
ellli. and was then treated with quinine. 
The doctors think that the.\- are now in a 
way to discover a serum that will render 
|)eople immune to the malaria. 

Experiments to reproduce dead men's 
features from th< ir skulls Hre being made 
in Germany. The method i»ursued is that 
l>roiH>se<l by the late Professoi- His. of 
Leipzic. to reconstruct the face of John 
Sabastian Ha<h. At the I'niversit.v of 
Oras the skulls of i-rlminajs who have 
bePli execute*! are iise«l. Oasts of these 
will Im' taken in plaster and Kivcn ti> ilif- 
ferenl persons to treat accordinj;- to the

<-ompar<"»l with one another and with pluv 
losiranhs of the original owners o'' ilie 
skulls, taken either before or after ileatb. 
Should they prove at all successful in ob- 
taining a res<'mblanc<\ there is likely to 
be a painful riimmagiuK among the bones

Crude oil has been pr<ned to be of use, 
n<it only in suppressing the dust nuisance 
on railroads, but in improving the condi- 
tion of the highways. At the good roads 
convention, in St. Louis, recently. Maj. 
Meigs, Ji civil engineer, of Keokuk. Iowa 
asserted that he had obtained very good 
results with oil, and recommended the 
wide experimentation. Ma.i. Meigs' at- 
tention was directed to the use of 

oil by reading in a Pennsylvania paper ■%■■■ ■■■PBI fit A Al B# A

Sweepers Who Pretend to 

Help Him Forget Alt They 

Ever Knew. 

Tlu' iiivt'stisiation insliiutt-d by Si)e- 
lial Agent Haker of the Northern Pa- 
> itii- road to locate the leakage of wheat 
shipped in here has been dropjied. 
owin,? to the fact, it is stated, that 
everybody who was in a position to 
throw ,any lijiht on the matter was 
found to have a wretchedly poor 
memory. It was round by Mr. 15aker 
liiat the cais that were switched <»ut 
from the elevators had. as a several 
rule, considerably more wheat in them 
than ordinarily Is and .«hould be the 
(a.«<> when cai.s are properly cleaned, 
aiiii that the iiriviUs/ of sweeping the 
cars was belngr sold by rallmad em- 

Some of the sweepers, who resented 
Mr. Uakei's interference with their 
operations and dio\.- him away with 
thieats and nienaccs of violence, be- 
came scaled on letlection, and they vol- 
unteered to assist Mr. Haker. and tlie 
p.ircnts i>f sfune of them took a hanil 
alsi>. These allies, however, g'rew luk-.-- 
waim. it is said, as the prospect of 
trouble on account of r»'Slsted 
aid threat 'Tied Mr. Maker jjrew remote, 
and they disjdayed such astonishinj; 
lapse of ni'-mor.v that their aid amoum- 
etl to nothinpr. 

Several interest*nK incidents have 
been brought to light in connection with 
this matter. For instance, it is stated 
that on the morning of Xov. 24 Ifioo 
pounds of wheat in eight large guiDiy 
s.iiks were found in a lox in the rt-i-ir 
of the switchman's shanty at the Gai- 
tield avenue crossing. The wheat was 
i'ound by the switchman who w.^nt on 
•luty Mt the crossing in the morning, 
his atit-rition having been pttractei V)y 
footjirints in the snow lemling to the 
box. The pi-ints led straight from one 
of the main track*! to the box and back, 
indicating that the \vh2at had been 
taken from a car standing at the rross- 
ing. It is not usual, it is said, to stop 
cars at thi.-^ point, luit it was evident 
that in this case a stop of some length 
must have been made, and Just oppo- 
site the box. too. which i.< regarded 
as a most fiu'tuitous combination of 
circumstances for who(>ver unloader. 
the wheat.

Charles Millar Gets a Heavy Sen- 
tence in Consequence. 

Chailcs Miller, who ai rested for 
drunkenness last night, took offense at 
th? pranks of William Lundijuist. a 
drunken fellow-prisoner, and gave him 
a t-rrible itcating in the jail. Both of 
Lundquist's eyes were blacked and his 
fijce looked like a raw lieefsteak. 
Miller was this morning, by Judge 
Oearhart. given a tine of $25 and costs 
or twenty days in jail for the assault 
and •$!•) and costs or ten days in jail 
for drunkenness. He could not pay his 
lines and will serv ■ his sentences con- 
secutively, making his term thirty days. 

The court thought that Lundfiuist 
had l>een punisliecl enough and he was 
let off with sentence suspended. 

Olaf L.undl>erg. a plain drunk, went up 
for ten days.

Opposed to Repeal of Gar-

Additional Protection. 



Is For Its Repeal— Lay- 
bourn IMay Get Good 

Senator Vl. B. Hawkins arrived in the 
city last night from Biwabik and left 
this afternoon for Philadelphia. He 
will visit Washington next week, and 
after nuiking a short visit to his old 
home in New York, will return to Min- 
nesota, arriving in St. Paul Saturday, 
Deo. 31, In ample time to participate in 
the organization of the state senate 
the following Tuesday. 

While Senator Hawkins since his 
election has been k^pt exceedingly busy 
with his business affair.s, he has not 
neglected to devote a great deal of at- 
tention to the study of sul»jects which 
will lie brought up for consideration 
during the coming session of th;' legis- 
lature. In regard to the forfeited tax 
law, in which Duluth is so vitally in- 
terested, and which was enacted two 
years ago. Senator Hawkins said he 
was of the o;.inion that it should be re- 
pealed. He will advocate .^ome 
changes in the' garnishment laws, but 
will be opiuised to the plan of the Retail 
Merchants' association, which pro\ides 
for making it lawful to garnishee wage?, 
due a delator in excess of $s a week. 
He favors additional protection to the 
families of wage earners rather than 
less. He will also be apposed to any 
attempt that may be made to reduce 
the amount or value of property exempt 
from execution. 

Senator Hawkins has expressed a de- 
sire to do all in his power to secure any 
legislation which may be deemed desir- 
able for the benefit of Duluth or St. 
Louis county, and will work in har- 
mony with the lest of the delegation 
along these lines. 

It now seems quite certain that Georg 
K. Laybourn will be tendered the chali- 
maiishi:' of one of the few important 
committees in the house. Mr. Lay- 
bourn was an active member of t'ne last 
house, and by reas<tn of his experience 
is naturallj in line for one of the choice 
places. Aside from this he is a mem'oei 
of the steering committ'^e that has con- 
ducted the campaign of A. X. Dare for 
the speakership, and as Mr. Dare's 
election is now conceded. Mr. Lay- 
bourn's services will undoubtedly re- 
ceive merited recognition. Another 
member of the St. Louis delegation Is an 
aspirant for the chairmanship of the 
the committee cjii Insurance, with rea- 
.«onable i)rospects of success. P. C. 
Schmidt, of this city, held this position 
in the last legislature. 


Explanation of an Associated Press 
Dispatch Last Night. 

An Associated Press dispatch from 
Niles, Mich., received last night states 
that suit has l>een brought there by the 
board of educ-ation of this city against 
Henry Lardner, a capitalist of that city. 
for $100,0(10 damages because of the loss 
of the board's deposit in the Security 
iiank. 'i'he suit, according to Wilson ti. 
Crosiiy, of this city, who is the board's 
attorney, is simply a suit on the iiank's 
bond as a depository of the board. 
Judgment was uljtained for the amount 
of the deposit, which was about $(>00'», 
a.gainst local bondsnn n. and a separate 
suit was begun in Michigan against 
i.,.irdner because he has no residence 
h)pe. The suit is not fcu' $100,000 dam- 
ages, nor is it for any damages what-

To Issue Refunding Bonds. 

The town of Kite Lake held an elec- 
tion yesterday for the purpose of v.iting 
on the issuance of refunding boncis. 
The bond i.ssue carried by an almost 
unanimous vote. only one dissenting 
vote being cast. The jiroposition was to 
issue bonds in the sum of $10,000 to take 
up the old bonds of the town, which 
expired last October. The old bonds 
were in the same amount. The new 
bonds run ten years and bear 6 per cent 
interest. The vote was light.

Writes From New Zealand. 

A letter has l)een received by John 
A. Stephenson from G. H. MacEwan, 
who was a Duluth resident for manv 
years and is now in New Zealanci, 
where he is engaged in the creamerv 
business with his brother. He likes his 
new home very much, but says he is 
occasionally homesick. They are just 
about to ship 1200 tons of cheese to 
Great Britain. 

Cannot Find His Relatives. 

Tlic case of Simon Lannlgan, the man 
who was found insane in probate court 
a few days ago, is still in doubt. If 
Lannigan's story that he has relatives 
in Buffalo is proved to be true, he will 
l)e sent there. If not, he will be taken 
to Fergus Falls. \V. A. Gates, the agent 
of the state board of charities and cor- 
rections, who takes cases of this kind 
when they are to be transferred to 
other states, was here this morning, 
but he did not take Lannigan, because 
it is not yet determined whether he is 
to go to Buffalo or not.

Argued the Tax Cases. 

County Auditor Arbury and Wilson G. 
Crosby, representing the Iniard of edu- 
cation, neturned today from St. Paul, 
where they were in attendance upon the 
supreme c-ourt yesterday morning on 
the tax cases that were sent up from 
this county some time ago. VV. "W. 
Billson appeared for the property own- 
ers who arc trying to get the taxes set 
aside, and the stipreme court listened 
to a long and thorough argument of 
the questions involved. The case is 
most important, and an early decision 
is looked for. Those who were present 
state that they are confident that the 
county will get a favorable decision.

Representatives of Thirty Railroads 
Discuss the Matter. 

Chicago. Dec. 21. — Thirty railroads 
were represented at the meeting held 
at the Orand Pacific hotel to consider a 
plan propo.-:ed by Charles B. Maugham 
for a joint txhibit at the Paris exposi- 
tion in 1900. The plan suggested Is to 
omstruct a large scenic mai> that shall 
show the route of every railroad In the 
country by electrical devices, and on 
vv hich the elevations and natural fea- 
tures of the surrounding country will lie 
shown in proper proportion arjtl color. 

Secretary McUiblton of Commissioner 
General Peck's office was present and 
said that if the railways took up th^ 
matter the French commission would 
undoubtedly give the space required. 
The representatives of the various rail- 
road systems di.-^cussed the project thor- 
oughly. It was decided to raise ?100.000 
for the exhibit. A committee was ap- 
pointed to act with Mr. Maugham for 
the purpose oi interesting other rail- 
roads in the project and securing th • 
money needed to carry out the idea. 


A confidential 
department who 
Imlians on the 
Karth. Pad Laki 
vations for several weeks has 
to St. Paul and will at once 
the department. As the agent of thf 
gi>V(^rnment he has been close to the In- 
dians for some time. 

"The Indians are very ugly over the 
recent deiision of the land office on the 
question of cutting timber on the ceded 
reservations." he said. "The Leech 
l..iike Indians a few days after the re- 
i-ent battle on the Leech I.^ke reserva- 
tion held a council with Mr. Jones, com- 
missioner of Indian atTairs. and fully 
discussed the timl>er question. They 
told Mr. Jones that they did not want 
any more timber cut on the reservation. 
He promised them that their wish 
should be respected. They trusted 
Commissioner Jone-s with th^Jir troubles 
and are very^much surprised to learn 
that Commissioner Hermann has de- 
cided that the dead and down timl>er 
can be cut on the ceded land as it has 
been cut before. 

"P^ver since the cutting of the d?ad 
and down timber was first begun on tlie 
reservations the Indians have been 
roVWied. Men having contracts to tut 
dead and down have cut everything in 
sight, and there is no wonder that the 
Indians object to it. Under the new 
rules it is hardly likely that the cutters 
could get anything hut the actually 
dead and down timlier, but the Indians 
do not go into details, and they have 
been promised many times that no 
green timber would be cut. promises 
that the government has seemed power- 
less to carry out, that they will not 
listen to any explanations .now. They 
say that they have been through the 
Avhole thing before and that they know 
what rules and promises amount to. 
There is only one thing that will satisfy 
them, and that is the absolute abroga- 
tion of the dead and down cutting con- 

"The Bear Island Indians of the Leech 
Liike band, the Indians that were en~ 
gaged in the recent fight with the au- 
thorities in which seven lirave soldiers 
gave u^" their lives, are the ringleaders 
In the affair, but they have nearly al! 
the other Chippewa.s on their side. They 
announce that the Chippewa tribe 
stands together and that it has l»een d'^- 
cidetl in solemn council that no nmre 
timiier is to iie cut on any of the reser- 
vations. They are in earnest in this, 
and as soon as any of the lumbermen 
try to go on the reservations to carry 
out any contracts fur the cutting ot 
either dead and down or green timb r 
then- will be trouble. 

"The Indians say that if any logging 
outfit appears (m the reservation they 
Avill put it off. 1 beli -ve that they wiil 
do it. The lumbermen are not the 
easiest people in the world t<> deal with, 
and 1 am cor.vince<l that if the Indians 
attem(>t to I'Ut any of them off tlu res- 
eivations there will be tntutile. The 
liimliermen have the law back of them 
and they will doubtless exenise their 
rights under the law and resist the In- 
dians. If they do, there is sure to l)e 
bloodshed, and it will only take one 
tlnip of Indian blood to i-aise all th^ 
Indians in the northern part of Minne- 
sota. They are all ready for war. .ind 
they will not be slow in sho\ving their 
l>ower. They are convinced that they 
v.hipped the soldiers at Sugar Point two 
months ago. and they are willing to 
have another try at them. 

"The Indians with whom I have had 
talks tell me that the recent fight at 
Sugar Point was unprecedented. They 
say that they did not intend to fight at 
that time, but that they were getting 
ready for a fight this winter in case the 
logging on the resL-rvations was con- 
tinued. This l)eing the case, how much 
more ready are they to fight now that 
they are convinced that they whi;)j>ea 
the soldiers in this fight. I am con- 
vinced that if ever l)lood is shed again 
on any of the reservations the entire 
Chippewa tribe will rise. The Indians 
on the north shore of Red lake are even 
metre savage than the Bear islanders, 
and when I visited this trib(> I found 
two Indians, whom 1 know belong to 
the Hear island band and were mixed 
up in th" fight at Sugar Point, visiting 
th-m. These Indians told mt' them- 
selves that they ha<l whipped the sol- 
diers and that they were afraid as soon 
as things became quiet the sobliers 
\\ould return for revenge. Both they 
and the Red Lake savages said that if 
the soldiers caint- again there would 
l»e all sorts of troulile, and thai .iill of the 
Chippewa."-, at least all of th ■ i'illagers.

Governor-Elect Lind Returns Home 
From Madison, >Vis. 

Madison. Wis«..Dee. il.^cJovernor-elect 
John Lind of Minnesota, who has l>een 
here for nearly a week stopping at the 
Park hotel, left for home last evening. 
Mr. Lind says he came here partly for 
the purpose of escaping from politicians 
and getting a little rest, but chiefly for 
the purpose of studying the Wisconsin 
system of caring for its public institu- 
tions and its dependents, all of which 
are In the hands of a state board of 
control, which took the place of the 
trustee system years ago. He spent the 
most of his time reading in the state 
historical lilnary on that subject. 

Mr. Lind is very much impressed with 
Wisconsin's maniier of taking care of 
its insane, by which acute cases are 
treated at the state hospitals, while the 
incural)les are transferred to county 
asylums. He says he is inclined to 
think that he will recommend to the 
Minnesota legislature the change to the 
Wisconsin system in the matter of in- 
sane at least, and should like to see the 
system extended to other institutions 
of his state, which, he .says, will, how- 
ever, require some time.

Commissioner Hermann So Decides 
Regarding Dead and Down Timber. 

Washington. Dec. I'l.— Commissioner 
Hermann of the general land office has 
announced that the logging of dead ami 
down timlier will be resumed on the 
Chippewa Indian reservation in Minne- 
sota this winter. l>ut will not be con- 
tinued after this sea.son. He said the 
decision was the result of the recom- 
mendations of Special Agents Parke and 
.'^chwartz. who investigated the subj^et 
for the general land office, and of the 
recommendations of several of the co-i- 
gtessional delegation, th? idea lieing that 
the larger part of the timber can be 
logged this .season.

An Electrician Is Burned to Death in 

Chicago. Dec. 2L— Among a network 
of wires twenty feet above the ground 
Roderick Chisholm. an electrician, was 
slowly ))urned fo death in sight of sev- 
eral hundred sr-ectators at the corner of 
Fifty-fifth and State streets. For nearly 
ten minutt's the horror-strieken crowd 
watched the workmen in their frantic 
efforts to release their comrade from 
among the wires. Chisholm was cm- 
Iiloyed by the Commonwealth Klectrlc 
company, and with a number of other 
men was stringing electric wires along 
State street. While at the top of oiie of 
the pr>les it is supjiosed he grasped a 
live wire. Up was seen to fall ba< k 
among the wires apparently lifelesj;. 
Ladders vere .secured and after co'i- 
siderable diilicully and not a little dan- 
ger to the resf tiers, Chisholm's body 
was gotten to the street. 

Atlanta, Oa., Dec. 21.— Raphael S. 
Payne writes to the Journal as follows 
from Havana, Cuba, under date of 
Dec. 12: The harbor of Havana pre- 
sents a very different picture from that 
of a month ago. Black, piratical-look- 
ing v.arships from sunny Spain, mer- 
chant vessels from various marts, Ad- 
miral Sampson's superb flagship, the 
New York, the I'nited States steamship 
Topeka and a smart American tug- 
boat with smokestack of red. white and 
blue, and the Stars and Stripes (lyin.g 
from its fiagmast, are some of the craft 
that now lay at anchor. The scenes 
along the water front denote great ac- 
tivity both In commercial and military 
circles. Merchandise and breadstuffs 
of all kinds are being unloaded on the 
wharves, Spanish sailors are busy 
transferring the ofticers in rowboats to 
and fro, mail and passenger steamers 
from the states are arriving every 
other day, barges are emptying thou- 
sands of ragged, ill-lo6king, half- 
starved Spanish soldiers into the holes 
of the lloating dungeons, many of 
whom will die like dogs and never look 
upon their native land a.gain. The cap- 
tain- of a CJerman transport refused to 
receive one of the regiments which em- 
barked this week until the commander 
had them washed wholesale. The bag- 
gage packages show that the Spaniards 
are leaving nothing behind. Th- wives 
and children, with their vivaci4)us man- 
ners and bright atthe are pleasing fig- 
ures in this strange admixture. An- 
other evacuation panorama is visible 
on the opposite shore at Guanabacoa. a 
S»\iss-like hamlet of vari-colored 
houses built at the base and up the 
side of a range of grassy hills within 
the shadow of Morro's fortifications. 
Ferryboats and scenes of little sailing 
craft ply between Havana an<l various 
points around the harbor, giving a 
piquant touch to the waterscape. And 
now that work has actuall.v b>'gun on 
the constructions of the 4(i0-foot pier 
and the six nules of railroad to connect 
with the united railroads of Havana, 
(Uianabacoa will become a bus.v iitlie 
port. A number of large warehouses 
will also be built at Triscorina, the 
point where the pier goes in, so that 
supplies can be stored without lanl 

Havana's great l)urial ground, which 
was named after Christopher Colum- 
bus, and where repose the remains >»t 
both the grandee and the pauiie!'. is one 
of the interesting features of the city. 
It reveals customs which, on the oii':' 
hand appeal to the finer instincts of 
the heart, while on the other they serve 
to disgust ami shock th>^ sensibilities 
of tlie most callous observer. The en- 
traine is maile tbrougb a superl:> Moor- 
ish an h of yellow stone. Broad walks 
and drives lined with tall, feathery 
pines which Unm beautiful arcades, 
u hose tracing is as delicate as a fern, 
extend through the grounds in various 
directions. In the center is a magni- 
ficent circle of palms which resemble 
sentinels in guard of the picturesque 
stone chapel a little beyond. 

.\mong the many beautiful marMe 
memorials, the most conspicuous and 
elal>orate are the imposing cenotaphs 
with their grcups of graceful figures 
erected to the memory of the Cuitan 
students who were massacred in 1S7'». 
and the firemen, who were cremated 
alive ill the great powder explosion 
some years ago. White marble aults 
laistd about two feet from the tuif are 
built in most of the family lots jf the 
weallhv -classes, w ho remember their 
dead with tributes of artificial ilov.ers. 
which contrast strangely with nature .s 
luxuriant offerings. Individual j.'raves 
are marked by fancifuUy-d'^si^ned 
crosses of black and white for the men 
and women, and of blue, pink and 
other colors young senoritas and 
boys. The graves are shallow ind so 
close together that the heads of the 
l)odies are hardly a foot apart. These 
are generally rented for five years, and 
if at the expiratit^n of that tim." the 
lease is not renewed and the rental 
paid in advance the bodies are dug up

Winter has set in, and the poor are

Kingston. Jamaica, Dec. 2L — London 
advices bring promise that the

.year with brighter industrial prospects, 
owing to the successful launching of the 
West Indian Co-operative union, or- 
ganized on the lines of the Calif<irnia 
Fiuit union and the Irish Agricultural 
crganizati(»n. which achiovcHl wonder- 
fully rapid success. Subserju.intly local co-operative s.>cletles and 
banks will be established by the cuiim. 
Important results, in the direction of 
obviating the present disastrous econ- 
omic- deacllock are anticipated, the pro- 
moters realizing the fact that only arii- 
fldal conditions hamper the profitable 
-xploitati.>n of those matchless natural 
resources which two centuries ■)f de- 
,votion to a single industry has ob-

Admission of a Street Rail- 
way Rule In a Dam- 
age Suit. 


Justice Buck of the Supreme 

Court Reverses Both 

of Them. 

St. Paul, Dec. 21.— Ten deci.sions were 
har.Jod ili)\vn by the supreme court n-'B- 
tvrday. Six of them were by Chief .Ins- 
lice Start, and- in all of them he -itllrms 
the <lecisions o;' the lower court. Jadpe 
Buck handed down faur, and in three 
of them the decisions of the lower 
ci'urts are reversed. 

Justice Buck'.>< first reversal w ill be of 
genera! intercut, on account of the 
stand he takes with regard to perso!ia! 
injuries and the rules of city rail.vuy 
companies for belter insurance against 
accidents. The case is ihat ^tt Kric 
Isaciiks^n. respondent, vs. Diriuth City 
liailv.ay coinp-iny. appellant. Isaa 
was run down by a car and injur.-d. 
At the trial his counsel was alloAi-d, 
against the defendant's objection, to 
introduic a rule of the company f>jr 
the guidance of the niotornian. pro- 
viding that "he must keep a sharp hck- 
uut to avoid running: into pedest.i ms 
and vehities. e^ipecially at cross streets. 
While the car is in motion the resp;jn- 
sibility safe running rests with him. 
We will be held responsi''le for uny 
damages resulting from nc-gligence." 

The supreme court holds the adrnis- 
Hion of this rule in evidence t > be error: 
thai the rule imposed a higher degree 
of care on the niotoneei- than the law 
reiuirod; that the jury might have un- 
derstood iliat the rule imposed upon 
him and the defendant an extraordi- 
nary degree of care as to travelers «.n 
defendant's track, whereas the law im- 
poses only a reasonable degree of care 
and vigilance in such cases. Held, also, 
that there was sutticient evikn "e to 
justify the trial court in permitting tne 
qutstion of the dL-fendant's negH.-;ence 
anti the plaintiffs coniributory negli- 
gence to go before the jury. Ordi^r re- 
veised and a new trial granted. 

The second reversal coveis the piy- 
n»-nt on state lands which have been 
assigned alter being bid in at tax sale. 
Th? case is that of Nannie M. McLa >h- 
lan, respondent, vs. J. M. Carpenter tt 
ai, defendants; William Craig, appel- 

Ill the third r^^versal the court un- 
winds an interesting tangle g-.owing 
«>Ut of a limited divorce, where the 
property of the divor^^d husband wa;- 
placed in the hands of a receiver ;!nd 
sold because of his failure to pay his 
divorced wife permanent alimony. The 
title is Timothy Donahue, appellant, vs. 
Livingston Quackenbusn, resp-jndent.

First Trip Across the English 

Channel In a Steerable 



Andree*s Balloon Was Rigged 

With a Precisely Similar 

Steering Apparatus. 

London, Dec. 21.— The Daily Chron- 
icle successfully carried out the first 
trip from London to the continent in a 
steerable balloon. For weeks past the 
large balloon in the grounds of the 
Crystal Palace has been awaiting a 
northerly or northwesterly wind. It 
started at 11:38 o'clock in the morning. 
The passengers were Percival Spencer, 
the famous aeronaut, to whom the bal- 
loon belongs, and Lawrence Swin- 
burne of the Daily Chronicle staff. 

The balloon's cubic capacity is r>6.000 
feet and its weight empty 1050 pounds. 
The steering apparatus consists of a 
sail twelve feet square, weighing ten 
pounds and a trail rope 500 feet long 

with a 100-pound weight at the end. 
When steering becomes necessary the 
balloon descends until the rope trails on 
the ground, and by attaching the up- 
per end to one side or other of a ring 
above the car the sail is brought 
round to catch the wind. In this man- 
ner a course of four or five points from 
the direction of the wind can be sailed. 

The balloon was reported by Lloyd's 
signalman to be »rossing Peachy head 
at 1:30. So<m after 4 o'clock it was le- 
ported to be passing over Fecamp. Mr. 
Swinburne telegraphed the Chronicle 
that the balloon descended safely at St. 
Roinain, fourteen miles east of Havre, 
at 4:35, and that the steering apparatus 
was employed twiie during the trip. 
The aeronauts had one narrow escape 
when the balloon desiendi d too closo to 
the waves and shipped water in mid- 

Although the general purpose of the 
trip was to add lo the knowledge con- 
cerning diri.gible balloons, special in- 
terest attaches to it owing to the light 
it may throw upon the fate of Andree. 
whose balloon in which ho attempted to 
reach the North Pole was rigged with 
a precisely similar steering apparatus. 

This is the fourteenth successful 
cross-channel trip, several other at- 
tempts having had fatal results.

Americans Control Canadian 

Markets Notwithstanding 

England's Tariff Pull. 

Washington, Dec. 21.— The preferen- 
tial tariff in favor of Great Britain has 
not worked particularly well in Can- 
ada, according to figures transmitted 
by the I'nited States commercial agent 
at Palmerston. F»ir the four months 
ending Oct. 31 the Dominion has been 
allowing British goods a preference of 
2.") per cent in import duties. Yet, ac- 
cording to the ofl'cial returns, the im- 
portation of British goods increased 
slightly only in bulk while, even pay- 
ing the discriminating duty of 2,") i)er 
cent, the imports of iron and steel from 
the United States increased so notably 
that they more than offset the general 
tendency to increase over British iin- 
port.s. Explanation is unofficially made 
that Canadian importers preferred to 
await the outcome of the present reci- 

4»rocity negotiations at Washington be- 
ore transferring orders from the 
I'nited States to British houses, but it 
is candidly stated that even with the 2.") 
per cent British manufac- 
tures cannot compete with the Amer- 
icans in Canadian markets.

An Alleged Spy is Tound on 

a Newspaper Dispatch 


Was a Good Liar and Was 
Ordered Off the An- 

The newspaper dispatch boat Ely, a Brit- 
ish tramp chartered by a New York daily 
in wspaper, arrived in the outer harbor of 
Giiantanamo on a June afternoon wh^n 
tin,' Cuban reinforcements under Gen. 
Pedro Perez had joined the Kallant ma- 
rines at Camp McCalla, says the New 
York Sun. Slie brought a mixed cargo 
and, contrary to her clearance i)apers, a 
passenper who had boarded her at Kiiic;- 
sloii, Jamaica. The skipper of the Kly, 
havinp broupht his ship to an anchor, 
haiKcl the dispatch boat Premier and 
ask<d a Sun reporter to come aboard. 
"We have a. stowaway in the liold," 

shouted the skipper, "and we think he's a 
Sp;uiisii spy. Wont you come over and 
have- a look at liim?" 

'I'he stowaway prtitested volubly, and, 
pointing to the stump of what had once 
Ot 1 I) his left arm, said: 

"No spy. Arm shot off liphiinR for Cu- 
ba l.ihre. If 1 could only see (ieii. I'eiez. 
He knows I'm a bravo soldier. Only juit 
me ashore and let me lind my way to the 
Cubai army." 

Then, in answer to a volley of ..(lues- 
lioiis, the poor devil tauRied himself up 
on ilates and jilaces. Search of l^is tai- 
tt-red <lothing brounht to lisrht a ilis- 
c.'iar^'e pai)er siRneu by an Italian vi<-e 
c'liisul at a Chilian port. This document 
si'l lorth that its holder had served as 
ship's carpenler on a merchantman iily- 
luK between South Ameri<-an and West ports, that he had been in hospital 
two months and that he was an Italian 

Asked why he had left Jamaica, where 
food, at least, could be had. and where 
even a one-armed man could pet odd jobs 
around the wharves, loading banina 
■sii'amers and the like, the stowaway spun 
a yarn about wanting to light for <,'uba 
under his old commander, ''Gen. Perez, 
so brave, so gootl." 

He swore by the saints that he had 
hunted vainly all over Jamaica for work, 
fnat he was starving when he stole 
aooard the Ely and hid in the hold while 
ihf (lisfKitch boat was coaling at the 
Kingston wharf. He reeled off the names 
of a dozen Cuban agents in Jamaica, 
.uily ki.own to the initiated, but he insist- 
ed that his appeals lo those persons lor 
a.-^sisl.ince in rejoining the Cuban army 
met only with rebuffs. 

.\gain and again he protested against 
the outspoken suspicions of the skipper 
uid the reporters. "If 1 could only see 
Cien. I'erez." was his plea. "He knows T 
fought l)ravely. lie knows when I lost 
my ai'ni. He will tell you I am no spy. 
Would a spy be poor and starving'.'" 

This was something of a clincher, for 
at the time the Spanish colony in King- 
ston had gold in abundance, and their 
spies were well-fi-d, sle<-k chaps, at least 
those known to the .Vmeriean consul, Mr. 
Hent, and to some of the reporters. The 
Sun reporter decided to repeat thi» slow- 
Hway's yarn to Commander MeC'alla and 
let him settle the fellow's fate. 

(»ii bo.irding Iho Marblehead .ind enter- 
ing her comm.inder's cabin th<' reporter

to relinn to his army that night. 

"Hring him over here at once," wa? Mc- 
Calla's order, wtien the ri>porter had in- 
formed him of the arrival of the Kly and 
her stowaway. "If his story is straight 
our friend, Gfii. Perez, will know him. If 
not, he may lose more than an arm. Bring 
him over. Stop. I'll send my launch after 
him," and Ensign Sullivan was detailed 
lo keep the stranger under surveillance 
md to see that he was not informed of 
the presence of Gen. Perez on the Marble- 

MeCalla conducted the examination. lie 
gave his victim rope enough, with the re- 
sult that was expected. It was a cunning- 
ly woven tale of jtrivation and danger, of 
devotion to the Cuban cause, of the battle 
with the Spaniards in which, so the story 
ran, gallant Gen. Perez saw one of his 
faithful followers lose an arm in lighting 
for the flag of Cuba Libre. Details of 
dates and places, the size of the commaiul 
under Gen. Perez, the names of the Cuban 
leaders in each of the provinces were 
.jiveii with ijariicularity. 

"And \ou will know your old general 
when you meet him?" asked Commander 

'Know him'.'" was the renly. "Know 
him? Oil, sir, I would give this other arm 
iiist to see him onci' more. Then he would

I fought at his sifle. 1 can never f<uget

or course the suspect's fate was* set- 
tled b\ that time. The Marblehead's com- 
mander and the <'uhan geueral had a 
v.-hiiipfred conversation, and then Perez, 
addr-ssing the vi< tini. a.sked in Spanish:

Practical Joke That She Played on 
Marc Antony. 

E. H. House tells the fonow; liUl»i 
story in the November St. Nicholas: 

When Antony first went to Alexan- 
dria as a mighty general, Cleopatni 
thought it necessary to keep the con- hero in goo<i humor liy offering 
him all sorts f»f diversions and pas- 
times, which h" tried to repay us well 
as he could. One day he gave onlers 
for a great fishing expe<lilii>n, vt-ry 
much to Cleopatra's «lelight, as lishing 
was one of the sports she exi^elled iti. 
.\nt<iny was either unlucky or unskiU- 
ful on this occasion, for he brouirht up 
nothing, wiiile the Egyptian 'lui-ea 
never <lropped her line without cacthing; 
a prize worthy of an expert. 

Antony was so disgusted at his failure 
that he tried to make matt rs look bel- 
ter Ijy playing a trick on his ctini!>nn« 
ion. He secretly sent some diver.»^ dov.n 
into the water to fasten fish upon hia 
hook, and then pulled them in with a 
fine show of triumph, calling every- 
iMidy to observe how suc<*essful he was. 
Unfortunately for him, Cleopatra h^id 
observed more than he wished. .She 
kept quiet, hov.ever. and '^retended she 
had never .seen so skillful a fisherniati 
in her life. She .said so :Tiuch in An- 
tony's praise, and held him as sucti a 
master of the spoi t, that wh.en she in- 
vited him to go out again the next day 
he tried to excuse himself, fearing that 
he would certainly be detected. But 
she insisted, and he was (d>!iged to take 
the risk, or con-fess that he was not so 
clever as he seemed. 

"He might have tried the same game 
once more," interposed Harry, who con- 
sidered that the tale was for his e.-'- 
pecial benefit and told particularly to 

"That is what ho intended to do." 
continued l'n<-le Claxton, "hut Cleo- 
j)atr;i was tct bright for him. She had 
a di\er of her own on board, and seat 
him into the sea with a big salted fish, 
like those that are now sohl in the 
market. This was hung ui«<m Ant'Hiy's 
hook, and as soon as he fell Ihe weight

Harry. "I'd like to try that Joke my-

In an article in the January Atlantic 
on the "Destructive and Constructive 
Energies of Our Government," Presi- 
dent Eliot of Harvard university 
affirms the occasional necessity of war 
and praises the wonderful exhibition of 
power shown by the United States in 
the recent war with Spain. He points 
out that the capacity for such a demon- 
stration is acquired and accumulated 
in the times and by the arts of peace— 
the power to destroy by the power to 
construct. And he suggests many ways 
in which, the war having now passed 
by, the current of power may be largely 
diverted to constructive and l)eneficial 
uses which will save life, increase food 
and ore production, avert evils, facili- 
tate transportation, promote industries 
and commerce, and foster education, 
without diminishing the efTiciency of 
our military and naval establishments; 
believing that more glory, honor and 
love are to be won by national justice 
and sincerity than by national lm« 
patience and combativeness and suc- 
ce.ssful self-seeking. 

■"I hear already a protest against the 
thought that men of science can have 
any special interest in war — war, the su- 
preme savagery, the legalization of rob- 
bery and murder, the assemblage of all 
cruelties, crimes and horrors set up as 
an arbiter of international justice," 
says President Eliot. "I recall the In- 
dictment set forth by Charles Sumner 
forty years ago, that this trade of 
barbarians, this damnable profession. Is 
a part of the war system, .sanctioned by 
international law; and that war itself 
is hell, recognized, legalized, estab- 
lished, organized by the commonwealth 
of nations for the determination of in- 
ternational questions!' This Is the 
jurist's and philanthropist's view. But 
the man of science has another view 
of war. He regards it as the worst sur- 
vival of savage life, still occasionally 
unavoidable because of other survivals 
of the savage state, such as supersti- 
tion, passion uncontrolled, and lust and 
wealth and power. He recognizes the 
fact that war makes a temporary and 
local hell on earth, and that all its 
characteristic activities are destructive, 
whereas all the normal activities of a 
free government should be constructive, 
and intended to promote the good of its 
citizens and general civilization; but he 
does not accept Sumner's dictum in his 
oration of 1845 on the 'True Grandeur 
of Nations,' 'there can be no war that 
is not dishonorable.' He recognizes 
that occasional war, and therefore con- 
stant preparedness for war, are still 
necessary to national security, just as 
police, courts, prisons and scaffolds are 
still indispensable to social order and 
individual freedom in the most civilized 
and peaceful states. Moreover, the man 

of science perceives that, while the im- 
mediately destructive objects in war 
are savage and barbarous, the instru- 
mentalities and forces used in modern 
warfare are closely akin to the great 
constructive agencies and forces In 
human society." 

lYofessor Eliot says the first Im- 
portant inference which may W drawn 
from the experience of our government 
and people during the past Ave months 
is the permanence of the martial vir- 
tues and commonness. In any vigorous 
race these virtues may fairly be called 
inextinguishable. A whole generation 
had passed since this country had been 
at war, just as a whole generation 
passed between the war of 1812 and the 
Mexican war; and yet courage, endur- 
ance and patience were promptly ex- 
hibited by hundreds of thousands of 
our young men. The extinction of the 
soldierly qualities is not at all to be 
feared in a rooust race inhabiting the 
temperate zone, which cultivates manly 
sports and pursues on land and sea all 
the occupations which require the 
maintenance of a watchful struggle 
against adverse powers of nature, or 
the utilization of natural forces of 
mysterious and formidable intensity. 
Civilized society is always maintaining 
a perilous conflict against 
forces, which ordinarily serve man's 
purposes, but sometimes try to over- 
whelm him. The professional soldier 
may be softened, and perhaps corrupted, 
by a long period of peace; but a citizen 
soldiery, when free from the horrilile 
activities of war, returns promptly to 
the labors of peace and escapes the 
dangers to which a professional sol- 
diery is exposed. It is. then, the regular 
pursuits and habits of a nation in times 
of peace which prepare it for succes=s in 
war. and not the virtues bred in war 
which enable it to endure peace. 

produced in many years, whereas the 
total European crops this year, accord- 
ing to official figures, are above the 
normal. Yet Europe la getting from 
this country more grain now than at 
this time last, year, and that, too, with- 
out materially advancing prices, which 
are on a rather low level. The figures 
show what marvelous grain-producing 
capacity this country possesses. 

Of course, these immense shipments 
cannot continue much longer without 
creating a big hole In home supplies 
and causing a rise in prices. It can 
hardly be expected, however, that the 
shipments will keep up to their present 
large proportions because those now 
being made are on several 
weeks ago and of late the Europeans 
have not been buying much. Thus a 
falling off in exports Is probable, but at 
the same time we may look for a de- 
crease in farm deliveries more than 
equal to the decrease In exports. If 
this be the case an advance in prices 
is inevitable. 

Senator Gray of the peace commission, 
oj enely expresses his dissatisfaction with 
the treaty, according to James Creelman 
of the New York Journal, who saw him 
at Soiitliampton. Eng.. Saturday. He 
speak.-, of the action of the United States 
natural j in forcing Spain to give up the Philippines 
as "ruthless," and believes that "we ex- 
changed the moral leadership of nations 
for the mere vulgar instinct of aojuisi- 
tlon. ■ The res|)onsibiUty, he says, rests 
entirely on President McKinley and his 
cabinet. That is to say, the commis.<i(.n 
was left absolutely without di.scretion in 
the matter. The senator will vote to rat- 
ily the treaty, hut will then favor either 
absolute Independence of the Islands or 
giving them back to Spain. 


While it is to eaily to estimate with 
exact correctness what the cost of em- 
pire will be to the United States, should 
the program of the McKinley adminis- 
tration be carried out, there are, ac- 
cording to the New York World, a num- 
ber of very expensive items now in 
full view. And these are by no means all. 
Some of the items are obviously neces- 
sary in the immediate future; others are 
in the form of plans in the various de- 
partments ready to be submitted to 
congress; others have been suggested 
by the president in messages to con- 
gress. Still others— and these consti- 
tute the largest part of the items in 
sight— are actually before congress in 
the form of bills regarded with favor 
by the majority. Below is a table for- 
mulated by the World, which embodies 
these matters of expense for the imme- 
diate future:

nilla, Subig bav, Havana. San- 
tiago, San Juan 125.000,000 

Total $799,000,000 

Care, it is stated, has been taken to 
underestimate the big items. Provision 
has been made for an empire on an im- 
perial scale, but with the idea that con- 
gress will only do what is absolutely 
necessary and pressing, and will see 
that it is done without a dollar being 
wasted or stolen. Such items, it will 
be noted, as the $20,000,000 annual in- 
crease of pensions, the increased cost 
of all the civil departments, the im- 
provements in the form of coast de- 
fenses, etc., etc., here at home, have all 
been omitted. 

After the empire is well under way 
the yearly cash of running It may be 
reduced to Senator Hale's figure of 
$200,000,000, in addition, of course, to 
our present expenditures. But before 
that time can come, says the World, 
the empire must be put in order. And 
it is this "setting up housekeeping" 
that will necessarily fall upon the 
United States and the home people in 
the next ten years. 

The story comes from Washington that 
Mr. Day and Whitelaw Reld will receive 
.■JIOO.OOJ each for their services on the 
peace commission and Secretary John B. 
Moore will receive $50,000. The three sen- 
atorial members of the commis-slon are 
debarred by the constitution from receiv- 
ing more than their senatorial salary of 
*5iH.iO a year. Politicians at WashlngU»n 
now begin to think they understand why 
Secretary Day and Assistant Secretary 
Moore resigned from the state depart- 
ment when they did. Had they remained 
there they could have drawn only the sal- 
aries attached to the department service 
while serving on the peace commission. 

One of the most interesting a.-ldes oZ 
the war with Si>aln was the request of 
Admiral Montejo for a letter from Ad- 
miral Dewey, which he might present to 
the Spanish cortes in justification of the 
event of May 1 in Manilla bay. The 
United States admiral gave it without 
demur, and it illustrates, to any student 
cf history, a great change in the attitude 
of antagonists in modern war.

The British government laboratory last 
year analyzed ir.SO samples of so-called

one-third were found to contain a goodly

It is not surprising, in view of the 
conditions affecting wheat, that con- 
siderable buying for Investment has 
taken place within the past week or 
two, nor will it be astonishing to nee 
some substantial advances in prices 
after the holiday season. During the 
latter portion of December the wheat 
market is generally dull and speculat- 
ive trading of very small volume, and 
this is the case at present. With the 
beginning of the new year, however, 
considerable activity may be expected. 
The heavy exports of grain from the 
United States continue with little di-

of wheat and 3,250,000 bushels of corn 
were exported. In the past three 
weeks 20,300,000 bushels of wheat and 
12.265,000 bushels of corn have been 
shipped, as compared with 17,310,000 
bushels of wheat and 11.785,000 bushels 
of corn in the corresponding time a

Chicago Chronicle: This year, the third 
from the close of the century, will pass 
into history as one of many and remark- 
able disasters. An evil star has been in 
the ascendant. There has been blood on 
the face of the moon. The months have 
gone, leaving destruction and death in 
their train, like- 
That fatal and perfidious bark 
Built in the eclipse and rigged with curses 

Current newspapers contained accounts 
of the hanging of two men in Illinois and 
another was to have been hanged ou a 
neighboring gallows, but was reprieved 
for ten days just as lie had made his last 
speiM-h and Ihe noose was ready to slip 
over his head. In Chicago two women 
perished in burning houses, one of whom 
was a mother attempting to save her chil- 
dren from lire. Near Neenah, Wis., a 
man and his wile were killed on a railroad 
tj-uck. Six persons were killed in New 
Jersey by a railroad train. A dispatch 
said that thousands of Chinese were 
starving. In Iowa a man shot his neigh- 
bor and his own wife and a similar 
tragedy occurred in Arkansixs, both 
crimes being Inspired by marital jealousy. 
Other accidents and crimes in great num- 
ber were reported. 

The papers of the day before had chap- 
ters of horrors. In Chicago two firemen 
were killed and many were Injured by a 
falling vail at a fire. A man in Indiana 
was blown forty feet in the air and killed 
by a gas cxt)lnsion. Six persons were 
killed by a cattle train in Florida. Three 
men were killed in a Colorado mine. In 
Indianapolis a man shot a boy dead for 
snowballing him. Reports for previous 
days in the week were freighted with 
news of disaster. A giant gas tank in 
New York exploded, killing a dozen peo- 
ple, and a flood from a reservoir caused 
great loss of projH'rty. Fumes from ar- 
senic In some Montana mines suffocated 
many human beings, who died from the 
poisonous exhalations. Eight men re- 
pairing a railroad track in Pennsylvania 
were ground to pumice by a passing 
train. An upper lake fleet of vessels is im- 
prisoned In the Ice of Lake Erie and great 
suffering with loss of life was caused. 
Two men and two women perished In a 
Brooklyn fire. The entire present month 
has furnishe<l a long line of catastrophes. 
The November storms by sea and land 
produced a plenteous harvest of death. 
The gales which swept the lakes drove 
forty or fifty vessels ashore, destroying 
life and property. A least 200 people per- 
ished in the hurricanes on the Atlantic 
coast. Ninety lives were lost In the wreck 
of the Portland and twenty or thirty per- 
ished on the Londonlan. An early bliz- 
zard devastated part of Dakota and Ne- 
braska and the deaths from exposure and 
starvation were estimted at between 10»i 
and 200. Summer tornadoes In various 
parts of the country wiused a multitude of 
fatalities. Deaths causeil by spring 
stcrms and freshets were m.'inv in num- 
ber. The fire in the Baldwin hotel, San 
Francisco, caused twenty deaths. Lynch- 
Ings were numerous in all parts of the 
country. In Europe dis.asters were report- 
ed frr»m every country involving immense 
loss of life and vast propert.v losses. The 
empress of Austria was assassinated bv 
an anarchist. The death roll of the year is 
uncommonly volirminous. 

In loss of life, in the hardships and suf- 
ferings of our soldiers. In the pangs of 
widowhood and orphanage, in the de- 
struction of the Maine, the war was as 
disastrous as it was glorious in its re- 
sults. To Sjiain the disasters were im- 
measurable, the defeat was crushing, the 
humiliation was complete. All wars are 
disasters. If they bring victory to a na- 
tion the cost is beyond estimate: if they 
bring defeat there Is no compensation in 
glory for the loss aiul dishonor. "The 
proudest nation in Europe has learned 
this terrific lesson and kneels in the ashes 
of its sacrifice. What good the year has 
yielded to offset the evil will not Be known 
until the future reveals its value.

Ha\ing left the matter for the talents of 
the shot>ping bureau to work upon, the 
hiiliday merrymaker could proceed upon 
his usual vocations, serenely conscious 
ihat he had done his duty and that his 
.sc.isonable emotions of joy and gratitude 
would be not only economically but sci- 
eiuificall.v expressed. If it should turn out 
that anyljody was dissatisfied he could 
put all the blame on the bureau, which In 
consideration of a slightly increased com- 
mission might agree to accept the cen- 
sures and show the proper remorse. 

Abdul Uainid For Peace. 

Chicago Chronicle: Not to be outdone 
by his (.Christian contemporaries, his im- 
perial majesty Abdul Hamld has ex- 
pressed his approval of the czar's disarm- 
ament scheme: and, also In emulation 
of his c.intemi>oraries, he has just ex- 

E ending $10,000,000 in improved ordnance to 
e used in case everyone doesn't disarm 
right away. The whole crowd are enthu- 
siastic for peace and amity, but it is to 
be noted that they keep a sharp watch on 
each other's hip pockets. 

Not a Grand Stand Player. 

AVashington Star: Admiral Dewev is 
perfectly content to let the score card 
tell the story, without taking off his hat 
to applause from the grand stand. 

Cheap Labor In the Phtlippineii. 

Chicago Record: A colored man In 
Omaha asks about the chances of success 
for ii negro colony in the Philippines. 
It would be an absolute failure. There 
is already a surplus of cheap labor not 
only there, but in Cuba and Porto Rico 
also, with which the colored people who 
have been reared in this country cannot 
possibly expect to compete. There are 
something like S,0«K»,000 or 9.000,000 of la- 
borers in the Philippines, who, like their 
neighbors in t:hina, are living at the cost 
«>f a few cents a day. In Cuba there will 
b'i an excess of labor for the present de- 
mands except in the mines, when things 
quiet down and the laborers are allowed 
to return to plantations. In Porto Rico 
the situation is the siune. No man should 
be encouraged to go from the United 
States to any of the new colonies unless 
he has a plenty of capital to buy land 
or engage in business. 

Expansion Within and Witliont. 

New York World: The population of the 
United States is about 75.000.000. Their area 
Is 3,602,990 stiuare miles. We have there- 
fore a population of only about twenty 
persons to the square mile. England has 
about 540 and Belgium about 530 to the 
s(iuare mile.- If our country were Jis 
densel.v populated as England and Bel- 
glum its people would number ncarlv 
2. OiHt, 000,001). or about twenty-seven times 
their .ictual number. Yet England and 
Belgium are fairly comfortable coun- 
tries to live in. With a population only 
one-twenty-seventh as dense as theirs, 
have we not room enough within our 
own borders to grow for some centuries 
to come, without seeking territorial ex- 

How Do Tou Know? 

Toledo Blade: We have up to date four- 
teen postofllces named Dewey. The num- 
ber of boy babies named for the Admiral 
is legion, with more yet to come. 


Philadelphia North American: The Fili- 
pinos have demanded $20,000,(XK). But per- 
haps Aguinaldo will take a dollar and call 
it square. 


St. Louis Globe-Democrat: The present 
stubborn attitude of the Phiiippliic in- 
surgents toward their Spanish prisoners 
indicates that a republic there under our 

protection would not add to the comfort 
of this country. 

Philadelphia Record; Adjt. Gen. Corbin 
thinks that it will take 50,000 United 
States soldiers to keep order in Cuba, 25,- 
0(") in the Philippines and 6000 in Porto 
Rico, From this we may infer that peace 
hath her sfildler boys no less a host than Humanitarianism in Cuba promises 
to be more costly than hegemony and 
proprietorship in the Philippines ami 
Porto Rico. 

Chicago Times-Herald: The large force 
demanded in Cuba is unnecessary and 
being unnecessary it should be promptly 
ri fused, for it would be an expensive 
luxury. Gen. Corbin calculates the cost at 
$li«)0 per man annually, or a total of $50,- 
OtM),000. The American taxpayer will be 
inclined to let Cuba take care of itself if 
this is the sum that he must pay yearly 
for its little caprices. 

< 'hlcago Cnronicle: We encouraged the 
Filipinos in their war against Spain. It 
was right that they should rebel against 
su( h a master, but now that we are our- 
selves master we will have no rebellion 
whatever. Wc derivo our authority to 
govern not from the assent of the gov- 
erned, but from our right as a conqueror, 
and we will make an end of rebellion in 
the Philippines just as certain as that 
Great Britain made an end of mutiny in 
India. We will not do It as an "uplifter" 
and "civillzer." We will do it us a 

New York World: Secretary Gage's 
conservative estimate put the deficit at 
the end of the current fiscal year at $112,- 
OdO.OOO and In this he did not, as an expert 
of the bureau of statistics points out In 
our Washington dispatches, take Intcj ac- 
count a possible loss of $45,(HjO.0OO in 
customs duties from our new possessions. 
Tl^e Increase In the army estimates I.- 
$120,000,000 and In the navy $80.000,0(KI. We 
are to pay *20.O0o,(HH) for the Philippines. 
Estimtites of the total cost of imperialism 
will vary, but all of them make It appar- 
ent that this glory will be expensive. 

Phlladelplda Press: Cuba is the size of 
North Carolina. It has today less than the 
population of Philadelphia. The army 
proposed is two and a half times as large 
as England sent to Egypt. It is as large 
as the army France uses to keep order 
in Algeria, four times as large and with 
five times the population of Arabs and 
Berbers, all armed. England has only 
75.000 white soldiers to care for 1.000,000 
square miles and 300,000,000 of people in 
India. The war department proposes to 
put 50,000 men into an island the size of 
Cevlon and with not a third its popula-

that will be the feature of my season at

Mrs. Tan<)ueray.' 1 had expected to ai>- 
]>ear as Magda. but I hear that the rights 
for the i)iay in this country are owned 
by others. Arthur Pinero really selected 
me for the original production of *The 
Second Mrs. Tanqueray.' He came to see 
me at the Manchester when 1 was acting 
in John Hares company, and told 
me about the i>l;iy. He said that George 
Alexander had the piece for his theater. 
V)ut seemed afraid to produce it in the 
regular bill, and would give It Instead at 
matinees. 1 accepted, and would have, 
been the first Paula if Mr. Alexander had 
not decided that he would after all givo 
the play at night. 1 was playing Zicka in 
'Diplomacy.' with Mr. Hare, and he re- 
fused to allow me to have his company. 
But what was my misfortune was an- 
other's good luck, and Mrs. Patrick 
Campbell made a great success." 

Miss Nethersole wishes to have it un- 
derstood that the "Nethersole kiss" is a 
thing of the past. "I never did approve 
of that," she said, "and I want everybody 
to forget all about it. I shall play 'Car- 
men' again this season, but there will be 
no more talk about the 'Nethersole kiss' 
if 1 can prevent it." 

In view of the great puissance of that 
embrace, it is difficult to see how Miss 
Nethersole will be able to crush its repu- 
tation so quickly. 

Modern Grandinotliers. 

You "wonder where they've gone to, 
those grandmothers of yore, 
those grandmothrs of yore. 

With such quaint old nursery jingles that 
we always cried for more. 

With their spectacles and aprons, and 
their ruffled muslin caps, 

And their puflfs of snowy hair, and their 
broad enticing laps?" 

Why, they've gone, dear, with the child- 
ren of those old and happy days. 

When little ones were little ones, in 
thoughts and acts and ways; 

When everything was different and sim- 
pler lives were led. 

Those days are gone, "tne times have 
changed," with that the whole is 

The grandma of the "modern child' must 

crimp and talk and dress. 
If not. I fear, the modern child might 

love her grandma less. 
For lads and lassies of these days are 

critical. I ween. 
With a grandma of "ye olden time" they 

wouldn't once be seen. 

But. after all, beneath the, and 

this we won't forget. 
That's t^andmas grandma, now as then, 

her iove is ours yet. 
And if the children turn to her— demand 

her love and care. 
They'll find that underneath it all tho 

grandma's always there.

Ten Millions More Than Last 

Year— Steel For IVIissabe 


The DuIiUh. llissabe & Northern Rail- 
road company has contrattivl to haul 
aliout oft.mtO.tKHt ftft of logs to Duluth 
this \vint«M-, which is more than 10.iM)0.- 
tKK) f-.^et in ex«ess of what tamo over the 
itiad las: season. For the accommoda- 
tion of this liusiness the railroad corn- 
puny has built about eight miles of new 
track. The lossirg industry is develop- 
ing rapidly along the lines of both the 
Missabe and Iron Kanpe mads, and 
•nakes it possilile for both to earn a 

>od revenue during the winter months 
•vh'-n the iron ore business is at a stand- 
still. Formerly the freight rate.s on 
logrs were so high that lumbM-men did 
not find it profitable to operate in the 
ranee roads' territory. It is said that 
they asked for a reduction, and m re- 
turn were asked just what rates they 
required to qnahle them to meet com- 
petition of lumV>ermen who used other 
roads or sent their logs to the mills by 
the rivers. The pine land owners i;ot 
together ar.d agreed on what they would 
ask. v/hich was much more than what 
they expected to receive, so they were 
agreeably surprised when they were 
granted all they asked without hesita- 
tion. From that time the logging busi- 
ness on these roads has developed to an 
enormous extent. 

Karly next month the Milwaukee 
concern that has the contract for build- 
ing the steel bridges for the Dulutli, 
Missabe & Northern Ilailroad company 
over the Cloquet river and the West 
Duluth Incline will begin shipi)ing thv 
>t.»'l work, nearl.v all of which Is now 
completed to Duluth. It will b- put in 
I»l:n i« a» n.pidly as ;.o.ssit>lc. The.s.- 
bridges, together with the other im- 
provement^ that have Ikou and are 
l>*»ing riadc fo the roadlwd, will put the 
linf in much better condition than it 
ever was l>cfore. and enaUl' it to easily

They failed to Get Into the Express 

Oronada, Miss., Dec. 21.— Illinois 
Central train No. 1, south bound, was 
held up one half mile south of Pope's 
station by two men at 10:30 last night. 
They suddenly appeared on the en:?ine. 
and compelled the engineer to stop, 
after which they attempted to break in 
the express door. They lired .several 
shots, l>ut failed to gain admission. The 
j.ilibers then Hed, ol)taining nothing, 
and making no attempt to rol) the pas- 
sengers:. No one was huil. 


Col. Rawlins of the United States 
cavalry said: "Led by our guide, my 
commantl had taken refuge from an In- 
dian attack in the Devil's Pocket." Th'> 
listeners smiled, says the PhUadeiphia 
Inquirer, but their smile faded as the 
coliOTel continued: 

"The Pevil's Pocket proved to be r 

• leip cleft or canyon in the side of a 
high bluff. The entrance was not more 
than a dozen feet in width, but il 
gradu;ill.v widened as it penetrated tht 
bluff, until there was ample room for a 
company of soldiers. The place was a 
natural fortres.=, and ten skillful 
marksmen could have held it againsi 
1000 redskins. 

As soon as we had safely gained thf 
interior we dismounted, and. leaving 
our horses at the further end of the 
canyon, manned the entrance, ready to 
welcome the redskins in case they con- 
cluded to call <ni us, which we soon 
learned that they did. 

"Thrice they charged up the mouth 

• )f the canyon, and thrice we drove 
thtm back. We wasted no shots, and 
when they fell back for the third time 
the plain in front of our retreat was 
thickly dotted with the bodies of dead 
and wounded Indians and their ponies. 

"The redskins were not ii.sed to ini.'; 
one-sided sort of warfare, and it was 
evident that they didn't relish it. In- 
stead of charging again they ti ied a 
new tack. Retiring out of range, they

all that night and the next day, and 
the succe-^^ding morning .still found them 

"We had eaten the last of our scanty 
provisions, there was no water in the 
f .'iny.n, and the m-'^n were suffering 
greatly frf)m thiist and hunger, two 
enemies which it was evident would 
soon Heciimpli.«h what the redskins had 
thus far failed in doing. 

"Thi? situation was fast growing des- 
peiate. and 1 was about to order my 
men to mount and force their way o»- 
ilie bravely lighting f-ir their liberty 
when suihlenly, away off to the tight a 
(•|i!Ud of dust eame rolling up over the 
horizon. It grew thi<ker in volume as 
it mf>vcd swiftly away in our direction. 
Feinting tfi the unusual spectacle I 
asked Hardy what it meant. 

" 'HufTlers — that's what it means!' 
< iiuckled the old scout. 'An it's mighty 
lucky that we're in here out o' thar way. 
.lest wait till they get a leetle closer an'

" 'Think they'll be apt to run for a

"'Few, hey'." snorted Hardy. 'Thar 
air thousands of the critters corain" 
along with that cloud of dust: an' 
they're erbout the only animal an Injin 
'U run from.' 

"Jack Hardy was right. Sweeping re- 
sistlessly along beneath the advancing 
dust cloui was a countless throng of 
shaggy beasts, with lowered heads and 
flashing eyes. 

"On they came, nearer and nearer, 
headed straight across the plain in 
front of the bluff. The Indian.^, intent 
on watching us, saw their danger when 
it was too iate. They must either meet 
that living avalanche and scatter it or 
go down before it. 

"A few ran for their ponies and 
quickly mounted, while (he remainder 
;<-..ailed the incvita'ile eollision on foot. 
They Idled the air with piercing yells, 
and lired wiidiy at the approaching 
mass, but all to no avail. M^ijesti • and

What It Costs to Learn 

to Ride In Proper 


The fam" of Fargo's "jag wagons" has 
extended over the land. The novelty of 
this mf Ihod of ccmnecting the citizens of 
lirohibition Fargo and prohibition North 
l>akota with wet goods emi)orlums of 
Mooihead, Minn., has attracted the atten- 
tion of visitors from everywhere. All the 
leading saloons run wagons. Stands arc 
made near the h<)tel^, and the tliirsty in- 
dividual gets into one of these rigs and is 
nuicklv whirled across the Red river into 
refreshing cocktails and foaming beer. 
Siimetimes ladles— visiting lailies. of 
cours;>— ride in these conveyances and en- 
joy the larU. Dist!nguisiie«| visitors have 
enjoyi'd this maimer of Miiickly getting 
aliipgi-ide the cup that cheers, and a St.

by the jag wa,gon. The driver would de- 
liver the coods and often re«-eive the i)ay

"That depends upon the person."

"How nianj letsons does a womai

"That"s where it depends upon the wo-

Atlantic steamship cftnipany to hnvo 
its Western terminus at Faspebiac o!» 
Gaspe Basin, with railioad connection 
with the Lake Superior district. The 
consul .says that one of the objects of 
the enterprise is to secure the output 
of Western .grain by an all-rail oceati 

route. Paspebiac l.s well situated for 
the purpose, the coni-al says, Indng

caus.' it v.ill be open at least two 
months longer in the winter and much 
earlier in the spring than the St. Law- 
rence cities, beside:-: cutting off ab-JUt 
6C0 miles of diflicull navigation. He 
adds that this adAantage v.ill admit of 
the shipment of a larger quantity of 
Western giain and jilso allow the West- 
ern farmers a longer season in which 
to market their harvests. The pro- 
|)osed steamship line is between Paspe- 
biac and Milford Haven, Wales.

In opposition to these letter.^ there 
were three petitiims, similar in .vord- 
injr. feigned i'y about sixty-five ;itizcn.^. 
protesting a:4ainst the pnrch«ise. .\fter 
all these had been read and tiled, the 
lioard listened to arginnents for and 
against the piopositi-m. There Wius nn 
unusually large crowd in attendance at 
the board meeiins. and the seats with- 
out the railing were lilied. Coniniis- 
sioner-elect Kugler was piesent to see 
how it is done, that he may be posted 
"•n tht routine when he takes his seat 
next month. 

The arguments were made by S. T. 
Ha! I ison. representing the St. Louis 
County Al>stract company, who sp>>ke 
in favor of the purchase, and by J. L. 
Washburn and L. E. Lukm. who «>p- 
postd it. The discussit>n was a wavoi 
one. and it led to many warm lilts be- 
tweon Mr. Harrisciii an.T yic. Wuoh- 
burn. The former spoke first, saying in 
effect that the bocks would be a great 
convenience to the county and to ciji- 
2ens who wished t.i look np titles. The 
county by buying the plant would fcjrr- 
.stall any monopoly of the abstract 

Mr. Washburn said that the abstract 
company would certainly not desire to 
sell the outfit if it were paying, so the 
county would lose on its investment. 
The county could not charge more than 
15 cents per transfer, and the com- 
panies now charging about the same 
are losing money. 

After the argument^ were over the 
board went into executive session. At- 
torney Phelps, mindful of the time when 
the reporters sat in the outside oftic? 
and heard the proceedings in an ex- 
oontive board meeting when he was ex- 
plaining something he thought the re- 
porters should not hear, not only locked 
the door to the commissioners' room 
but the door to the oui?ide room. 

After the board had pondered over 
the matter in ex^-cutive ses.^ion for 
some little time it went into open ses- 
sion again, having decided to reject tht- 
offer. W. B. Phelps read the follor.-inp 

"Section 764 of the general statutes of 
1894 might at first blush be understood 
to confer a right of purchase, v»ut a 
more careful reading of the act indi- 
cates an intention on the part of the 
legislature to limit the power to ab- 
stract books in existence at the time of 
the passage of the act, such power to 
l>e exercised witJiin a reasonable time 
after the act should take effect. 

•"After auth<nizing the ct^unty com- 
missioners tr» procuri* a tract Index 
and providing for the entry therein of a 
minute of all instruments thereafter 
tiled for record, it is provided that in 
any case there now is any accurate 
tract index or abstract of title in any 
county in this state owned by any in- 
dividual, the county commissioners may 
purchase such tract index or abstracts 
instead of causing a tract index to iie 
made, and thereafter the register of 
deeds shall make the appropriate en- 
tries therein of each instrument filed. 
or filed for record in his ofRce. and re- 
lating to real estate, and shall receiv.- 
a fee of 10 cents for indexing each 
transfer of deeds and mortgages here- 
after, the same to l>e paid by persons 
presenting the same for filing, for rec- 
ord or discharging an instrument on the 
margins of records, and shall make ab- 
stracts for persons demanding the 
same at a fee of 15 cents for each trans- 

"It will be noticed that the commi;?- 
sioners can purchase a tract index or 
abstract of title that "now is." i. e.. at 
the time of the r>assage of the act. 

"This act was passed in ISTO. but in 
1S71 it was amended. and '.>y the 
amendment there was added the clause 
prescribing the fee for "indexing each 
transfer of deeds and mortgages he»-e- 
after.' further making manifest the in- 
tent that the purchase should be made 
at once or within a reasonable time 
a.'ter the passage of the act was amen- 

"The act was again amended in 1S73. 
without material change, but rather to 
extend the time within which the com- 
missioners were empowered to pur- 
chase, as each amendment necessa'ily 
extended the time. 

"It has been the policy of the laws of 
this state to impose limits on the au- 
thority of boards of county commis- 
sioners to expend county funds. 

'"In the act under consideration it is 
provided that in causing a tract index 
to be made the commissifmers shall not 
pay moie than 2 cents for each trans- 
fer. It was for the same reason tiiat 
the power to purchase was confined to 
a set of abstract books in existence and 
to i>e bought at that timr.'. With the 
la[>se of time the number of transfers 
would be vastly increased, and "he ex- 
f»ense of the purchase would be propor- 
tionately greater. Twenty-five years 
ago the transfers In :^iy*county ol' toe 
state were comparatively few. and the 
books now offered to the county could 
have been purchased, if for sale, at a 
fraction of the sum now demanded. " 

Commissioner Dinham's resolution 
rejecting the offer was then pa.s.sed 

The board also, on Attorney Phelps' 
advice, refused to appropriate $100 as a 
reward for the capture of Samuel D.

Talk With a Physician on the 

'^Fashionable Disease," 


There was never so much talk among 
people generally of the disease known 
as appendicitis as there is now and 
there undoubtedly is a grow hig fear of 
it. A number of physicians say that 

they have had more frightened people 
running to them lately than ever be- 
fore with bad .stomach aches believing 
that they were being attacked by what 
some scoffers are pleased to term ihi- 
■fashionable disease." There have 
been during the past few weeks several 
cases of considerable prominence, the 
parties being well known and these 
have led people to believe that there is 
an alarming increase in the number of 
cases and that the malady is striking 
right and left. So great have become 
the apprehensions of people in this re- 
spect that a Herald man yesterday 
called on one of the leading physicians 
for some information as to the extent of 
the di.sease and to learn whether there 
is any foundation for the alarm which 
is felt. The physician called upon has 
had more of the kind than other 
doctors in Duluth and has made a 
careful study of the disease. 

When asked if he could say why 
there are so many more cases lately 
than heretofore, he made an answer 
that will surprise many. He said: 

"There are no more cases now than 
there have been all along. The reason 
for the general impression that there is 
an alarming in the number of 
cases lately is simply because the peo- 
ple who have been attacked lately have 
been more prominent than heretofore. 
Four or five cases have come close to- 
gether and in all the patients were 
more or less known. This has brought 
the attention of the public to the dis- 
ease. I probably have as many cases 
as any physician in Duluth and I have 
had just two so far this month. In the 
month of August I had six. but they 
were either out of town people or peo- 
ple not well known, hence but little was 
heard of them. In the month of July 
I had three cases. I first began per- 
formin.8r the operation in April, 1891. 
and since then 1 have had ninety cases, 
not a large number to spread 
over eight years. No, there is no 
ground tnr any alaj-m. 

"People have all kinds of notions 
about appendicitis. They think it is 
largely guess work with the doctors in 
making a diagnosis. It is true that 
the disease is one of comparatively re- 
cent discovery and hence is probably 
not as thoroughly understood today as 
it will be with further study and ex- 
perience, but an almost unerring diag- 
nosis can be made every time. A phy- 
sician who understands the disease and 
is thoroughly acquainted with its symp- 
toms ran tell it every time. The gen- 
eral symptoms are pain in the ab- 
dominal region, generally in the right 
side, accompanied by colic, etc. It is 
impossible to minutely exi)lain all of 
these and a person may have those I 
have mentioned and not have appendi- 
citis at all, but a doctor experienced 

in diagnosing the disease can tell 
quickly whether a person has it or not. 
In every case where the disease exists 
a deformity of the vermifsrm appendix 
is found which prevents it from empty- 
in.g ftself freely into the bowels." 

Asked as to the chances for recovery 
without an operation the physician 

"Of course, people do often recover 
from an attack of it without having 
the appendix removed, but the chances 
are that they will be attacked again 
and again and finally die from it. The 
most eminent physicians in the United 
States who have .studied the disease 
thoroughly agree that there is only one 
.safe thin,g to do and that is to operate, 
the chances that the patient will re- 
cover from an <»peration being far bet- 
ter than that he will recover without 
it. It is not for me to place my judg- 
ment above others. As a matter of tact, 
\ ery few persons who are operated on 
in time have any trouble. Most of 
them get out in three weeks' time and 
.some as early as ten days. But when 
the physician determines that appen- 
dicitis exists there is no time to be lost 
for every hour counts. Dr. Morris, 
who is the original operator, has com- 
piled statistics which show that 25 per 
cent, or one in every four, die in the 
first attack. Of the three who get well 
at least two will have another attack 
and the percentage of deaths grows 
heavier with each recurring attack. 
Operation is the safest treatment." 

iiome have the idea, too, that if the 
abscess In the appendix breaks before 
the operation the patient will die, but 
this is not corre<t. If it has been open 
several hours the chances are mucn 
against the patient, but there are fre- 
quently cases where it is broken. An 
operation was performed a week ago 
at one of the hospitals in which the ap- 
pendix had broken and the poisonous 
pus had Mown among the Intestines, 
but the patient is recovering.

uous by their absence from the hotels

Etgth Ward Bids Fair to Have More 
Than Its Share. 

The Ei.ghth ward promises to be the 
most prolific of aldermanic candidates 
this year. In a month they will, it is 
predicted, be growing on every bush. 

.Vmong those talked of is F. E. Bradl oy, 
of the grocery firm of Bradley & Young. 
Mr. Bradley is a silver man. Thomas 
I'ltican, of Ransbottom & ITlti.un, 
saloonkeepers at 5516 Raleigh .stn^et. Is 
credited with aspirations. Thomas 
Doyle, who is a business rival of Mr. 
I'ltican's firm, conducting a saloon in 
the same neighborhood, will, it is re- 
ported, carry the rivalry into politics, 
and will run if Mr. Ultican do.^s. Mr. 
Ui/yle is quoted as saying i.iiat he 
should not expect to be elected, and 
should be disappointed if he were, his 
object in running being to lay Mr. (Jlti- 
can out. Aldeiman Cochrane will^ be a 
candidate for re-election. 

The campaign in the Second, ward 
will be fully as lively as usual this 
year, according to indications. Alder- 
man Tischer wants to succeed him.^elf, 
and ex-Alderman Harker will run as an 
independent, it is said. S. O. Sterrett 
will, it is rumored, be the Republican

Christmas a Season When the 
Houses Get Lightest Trade. 

In the week before Christmas the hotels 
do not share pro.«»perity with the mer- 
chants. While the latter as a rule have 
all they can do to attend to the wants 
of the holiday shoppers and reap the 
most bountiful harvest of the vear. the 
hotel registers are adorned witli the au- 
tographs of very few travelers. The ar- 
rivals at the Spalding and St. Louis are 
now very light and no Improvement is 
ex|>ected until aft.-r Christmas. An expe- 
rieneid hotel elcrk said to a Herald re- 
port i>r lodiiy that Christmas time wa:> 
invariably dull in hotels all over the 
country and this is pariicularlv so where 
general business conditions "are good. 
During the \ears since 189:? when the

commercial travelers have not been able 
as a rule to sell many goods and the 
consequence h.'is been that they have been 
forced to work all the harder to earn

said he had sold enough goods this vear

to afford before for several years. Most 
of the men on the road are doing the

Poultry Men Meet. 

A large and enthusiastic meeting of

A paper on "Feather Pulling, Cause and 
Cure." was read by G. H. Thompson. 

A large number of entries for the 
coming poultry show were reported to 
have been received during the past

President Hill's Remark Concerning 
a Report From Los Angeles. 

St. Paul, E>ec. 22.— The report from 
Los Angeles that the Great Northern 
had come into possession of the Pacific 
Coast Steamship toinpany seems to be 
unfounded. When the report was pre- 
sented to President Hill today by the 
.\ssociated Press representative. Mr. 
Hill said it was news to him, a simi- 

lar statement having been previously 
made by others in the office.

Another Yarn That He is

Washington. Dec. 22.— (Special to The 
Herald. )--The Democratic. Populist and 
other leaders here believe that ex-Rep- 
resentative Towne made a mistake in 
declining to permit the of his name 
as the minority candidate for senator 
before the Minnesota legislature. It is 
generally conceded here that he do- 
serves the honor.

The latest yarn circulated by ex- 
Oovernor Merriam's friends is that he 
is to Hnally land a good office from this 
administration, and that it was never 
believed that he would be made secre- 
tary of the interior. They claim he 
may succeed Hitchcock at St, .Peters- 
burg, however, being better equipped 
for the latter place, so they say. though 
in what way he is equipped they fail to

Land Commissiimer Hermann said 
today that dead and down timber oper- 
ations on the ceded Chippewa lands 
will cease after this season. He said 
that all such timber can De gotten out 
I'y next Sluing, and the contracts let 
now will include it all. This decision 
will be welcome to some persons in 
Minnesota, who believe that so long as 
dead and down timber ot>erations are 
continued just so long will there bo 
dead and down timber. The commis- 
siunt-r says that the estimates on the 
timber land can be completed for the 
entire reservation by the end of the

Officials of the land and Indian office 
are in a quandary over the contradictory 
rei)orts Hied by the agents of tlie land 
and Indian tiflices respectively, and 
there is some apprehension as to the 
outcome of the matter. It will be re- 
membered that after this investigation 
of affairs at White Earth, Indian In- 
spector Jenkins gave out a summary 
of his work which contained the sub- 
stance of his report, filed with Com- 
missioner Jones last week. Land Com- 
missioner Hermann, in speaking of that 
portion of Agent Jenkins' rer>ort where- 
in it was stated that large quantities o: 
green timber were cut on the ceded res- 
ervation, said: 

"Agents Schwartz and Park report 
that they personally went"over and ex- 
amined a great part of last year's cut- 
ting and found that green timber had 
I)een cut, but not more than sixly-Hve 
trees to each 1,000.000 feet of timber, 
which was the number determined as 
necessary for boom sticks to boom the 
timber across the lakes; that in cases 
where the drive was a long one. over 
rough lakes, a double boom of l."0 trees 
to each I.OOO.OOO feet was allowed. They 
report that although in some instances 
the allowance for boom sticks was too 
large, from their own observation and 
what they could learn from others, they 
were surprised that the superintendent 
and his assistants did so well in guard- 
ing the green timber." 

With reference to the charge that but 
a small percentage of Indian labor was 
employed. Commissioner Hermann sal<l: 
"The agents report that by far the 
greater percentage of labor employed 
was Indians." The commissioner added: 
"The reports furnished show that the 
operations under this office netted to 
the Indian tribe $3*1,534,62, to the Indian 
loggers $33,851.30, and paid to the India:-, 
lalwrers about $26, ".M. 5.'). Also supplies 
furnished to Indian loggers to $96,46S.10; 
that these figures, except the last, will 
be materially Increased by the sale of 
the logs yet on the skids in the woods. 
The figures given by the special agents 
are practically borne out by the official 
reports received from the superlnien 
dent and Indian agent l>y the land 
office, complete adjustment not having 
been made." 

Officials of the Interior department 
are displeased with Special Agent Jen- 
kins' statement to the press, and It is 
stated that Mr. Jenkins will be repri-

I^and Commissioner Hermann has de» 
cided to cancel several contracts for 
dead and down timljer on four town- 
ships along the Great Northern. This 
action is taken at the request of Senator 
McCarthy, of Grand Rapids, who has 
clients interested in logging operations. 
These clients submitted proposals, but 
when the contracts were closed higher 
bids had been sul>mitted by other par- 
ties. It is claimed by Senator Mc- 
Carthy that the parties outbidding his 
clients secured inside knowledge 
through unfair means. The land com- 
missioner has decided to investigate the 
matter, cancel the contracts allowed 

and call for new proposals.

The Adjutant General of the 

Army Testifies About 

the War. 


Says Camp Wikoff Was 

Selected Because of Its 

Marine Advantages. 

Washington. Dec. 22.— Adjt. Gen. Cor- 
bin was the first witness before the war 
Investigating commission today, and 
was rigidly questioned regarding the 
selection of Camp Alger. Va. He testi- 
fied that the removal of Camp Alger 
was dictated by the secretary of war 
himself, and that its original establish- 
ment was recommended by Capt. Sea- 
burn, of Gen. Miles' staff. He (Gen. 
Corbin) had said at the time it could not 
be a good camp ground, because there 
was not sufficient range for rifle prac- 
tice. He had understood from the sec- 
retary of war that Gen. Miles had 
something to do with its selection. He 
was not aware of Capt. Seaburn's exact 
status, _but he understood that Capt. 
Seaburn had been .sent by Gen. Miles 
to make the inspection of the camo 

"Did Gen. Miles protest against or do 
anything against the selection of the 
camp?" he was asked. 

"Not to my knowledge," was the an- 

Gen. Corbin added that he did not 
know the reasons for discontinuance of 
the camp. Questioned as to Camp 
Wikoff. Gen. Corbin said that the troops 
and horses that arrived there about 
Aug. 8 were those left behind in the 
South from the expeditions to Santiago 
and Portb Rico, and that the transpor- 
tation of these had not, as he knew, 
led to railroad congestion or interfered 
in any way with the carriage of sup- 
plies for the troops subsequently ar- 
riving. He denied that the contract 
with the Long Island railroad gave it 
exclusive control, and said the only 
restriction made in that arrangement 
was the desirable one of prohibiting 
excursion steamers landing at the camp. 
He said one reason for its selection was 
the excellent facilities for water trans- 
portation. He said the camp at Tampa 
was never designed for anything but a 
point of embarkation, and said the first 
complaints he had heard from Camp 
Thomas. Chickamauga. were in the 

Asked when he first seriously appre- 
hended there would be hostilities. Gen. 
Corbin said he might say he did not 
seriously contemplate war until it was 
a fact, for he had hoped to the last 
moment that it would be averted. On 
April 10 the army, for one of its size, 
was well equipped and thoroughly sup- 
plied. There never was an army, he 
said, better equipped, better clothed, 
better fed or with a better morale than 
our regular army at that time. He 
said prior to the war there had been no 
complaints of refrigerated or canned 
beef, and that they were used by the 
armies of the world and in commerce. 
It was no new experiment. 

"Seriously speaking." said Gen. Cor- 
bin. "I do not think the war depart- 
ment contemrlated war until it was de- 
clared by congress and appropriations 
were available. Of course the possibili- 
ties were thought of. but there were 
no general preparations except so far 
as the department was able to meet 
the possibilities that confronted it." 

Col. Denby. who conducted the exam- 
ination, here suggested to Gen. Corbin 
that he observed the latter was cau- 
tious and reticent and explained "it is 
not our object to criticise strategy. 
That is not our business. The strategy 
of the war may have been right and 
may have been wrong. But our object 
is to determine whether the war de- 
partment acted efficiently." 

He said when Gen. Shaffer's expedi- 
tion sailed it took all the transports it 
was possible to obtain. The supply was 
not equal to the demand. It had been 
planned to carry about 25,000 troops at 
that time, instead of the 17,000 taken. 
He referred to the letter of Gen. Miles 
dated June 24, laying out the plan t>f 
campaign of the war. and said it was 
not approved. 

"Do you know anything about Gen. 
Miles' communication of June 24. 1 
think a letter to the secretary of war. 
in which he purposed to have the army 
■march clean through Cuba, take ."iO.OOO 
prisoners and work them and treat 
them kindly?" Gen. Corbin was asked. 

"Yes, sir." was the answer, "that let- 
ter was received and did not receive 
the approval of the secretary of war." 

"You say the proposition made by 
Gen. Miles to carry on the campaign in 
the manner which he indicates in that 
letter was disapproved?" 

"It was disapproved," replied Gen. 

"I would ask you whether the plan 
of campaign against Santiago was rec- 
ommended by Gen. Miles?" 

"I do not think the recom ncndatlons 
made In that letter of May 'il were, ap- 
provetl." was Gon. Corbin's reply. 

Gen. Corbin said there had been a short- 
age of uniforms, canvass and tentage. 
The factories had not made the advance 
preparations that had been expected. 
There had never been any trouble con- 
cerning provisions, he said. The matter 
of medical supplies and medical officers 
was left to the surgeon general and he 
sail that the president in every case 
wiiuld not listen to appointing a medical 
officer until recommended by the surgeon 
general, on the ground of fitness. He nad 
no suggestions to make based on the ex- 
lierlence of this war. but would be afraid 
to see another war for fear it would not 
result so well, or with so little loss of 

Adverting to Gen. Miles' complaint that 
paymasters were not sent to Porto Rico, 
as" re<iuested by him. Gen. Corbin said 
thoy were ordered immediately, but tliev 
went bv way of SantiaRo, where one fell 
ill with yellow fever. The health officials 
quarantined the vessels carrying them 
and Gen. Miles, he said, had thought it 
best for the paymasters not to come 
ashore at Ponce to avoid possible Infec- 
tbn. More troops, said the witness, were 
sent to Porto Rico than were desired by 
Gen. Miles, but only a few more. 

Gen. Corbin was asked how it happened, 
if there was anything wrong at Chicka- 
mauga or Camp Alger, that the inspector 
generals did not report It. He replied 
that be did not see any of the inspectors' 
reports from Chickamauga. He said he 
knew of no contracts during the war 
that were influenced by anything that 
was not entirely honest and fair to the 
government and that there was no in- 
stance of favorlteisBi in making appoint- 

"How do you account," asked Gren. 

Dodge, "for all these complaints against

Minority Report of the House 

Committee Provides For 

30,000 Regulars. 


This Number to Be Enlisted 

to Meet the Existing 


Washington. Dec. 22.— The bill for 
the increase of the regular army, which 
the minority of the house committee 
on military affairs will offer as a sub- 
stitute for the Hull bill, was drawn by 
Representative Hay, of Virginia, and 
is now in the hands of the war depart- 
ment, where an estimate is being made 
of the cost of such a military estab- 
lishment provided in the bill. The 
bill provides for a standing army of 
.30,000 men, 12,000 artillery, 8000 infantry. 
6000 cavalry and 4000 engineer signal 
corps and general staflf. To meet the 
existing exigency for troops in Porto 
Rico, Cuba, the Philippines, Hawaii 
and the Ladrones, the bill provides 
that the president may issue a pro«Ia- 
mation for 50,000 additional volunteer 
troops, to be enlisted for two years. 
These latter troops are to be com- 
manded by officers appointed by the 
president. The organization is to be 
the same as in the regular army. 

The present volunteers are to be mus- 
tered out within sixty days after the 
passage of the act, but volunteer or- 
ganizations now in the service shall t>e 
given preference for enlistment in the 
new volunteer army if they so elect 
within fifteen days. 

The bill provides that no regular 
army officer who was in the army prior 
to the war with Spain shall be mustered 
out of the service. 

Mr. Hay will file the bill and the 
minority report on the Hull bill to- 
morrow with the clerk of the house. 
The main contention the report will 
make for the minority plan as against 
the Hull bill for a standing army of 
100,000 men is that the future of the 
Philippines and Cuba are yet unde- 
termined, but that if the standing armv 
is increased to 100,000 it will be almost 
impossible, no matter what may hap- 
pen in the future, to reduce it. The re- 
port will say that a standing army of 
100,000 men will cost the people of the 
United States $165,000,000. This added 
to the $145,000,000 for pensions will 
bring the cost of the militarv estab- 
lishment up to $310,000,000, the largest 
charge in the world for a military es- 

The naval establishment would bring 
the total up many millions more. Mr. 
Hay estimates that a standing armv of 
30,000 with .50,000 additional volunteers 
would cost $100,000,000, but this charge 
might continue only for two years. The 
creation of a volunteer force for tem- 
porary purposes would always keep it 
within the power of congress to adjust 
the strength of that force to the exist- 
ing conditions. 


ice Gorge at Lorain That

Lorain. Ohio, Dec. 22.— One of the must 
formidable ice gorges which was ever

Should Have Been More Careful 

A Great Many Restrictions 

and Qualifications For 

Voters Are Removed. 

Was^hington, Deo. '22. — Tho :-v»nat^^ 
committee on foreign relations has con- 
liudetl its revisions of the bill pioviil- 
ing a territorial sovernmtnt for 
Hj:\vaii, and Senator Cullom reportoil 
the obtingos to the senate. There were 
mnii'-rous changes, the most important 
ber.ij; as follows: 

Th'^ section definins oitizensh:p \va^• 
amended l».v striking out tlie \v.>rd 
■"white." and also the explicit reference 
to Portujiuese. and left to real as fol- 
lows: "That all persons wh>> were 
citizens of the republic of Hawaii o:i 
Auk. 12 18SS. are herel>y declared to ue 
citizens if the I'nit'Hl States." 

The re juest of one-fifth iif the ni'mi- 
l>ers of the territorial hoiisf^ of repi-eseu- 
»atives is made suflieient to t'einand 
I ho ayes and noes, the originnal re- 
t|iiii' nient lieins? one-third. 

The provision in resrard to the <|iia!i!i- 
<ations of territorial senators is 
changed so as to require that the sen- 
ator shall he a male <itizen. ;!0 years of 
•ise that; that he shall have re.sided in 
the Hawaiian islands not less than 
.three years, an that "he shall he 
quaHlied tt) vote for senators," the ex- 
liii''it property qualification-^ heiUj? 
stri<ken out. A like change i.s made in 
the provision regarding members of the 
house, who are required to be qualified 
t>y the changes to vote for representa- 

Section 43. allowing each of tlie 
It'gislature to legislate, after the other 
has adjourned, was stricken out. as 
was also the provision requiring that 
v-ach bid should receive the written ap- 
proval of three members befoiv l>eii:g 
introduced. The provision authorizing 
the territorial supreme court to pais 
uiion the qualifications of membms of 
ihe legislature was not changed, and it 
Ma.s left as recommended by the con.- 

The governor is required to «cnd his 
♦•stimates for appropriations to the 
legislature as a whole, and not to the 
lienate alone, as originally required. 

The following restricti<m on tlie issu- 
ance of itonds is inserted: "Xer shTll 
any Kind or other instrument of any 
indebtedness be issued unless made re- 
deemable in not more than five years, 
ami payable in not more than fifteen 
yeav^. from the date of issue thereof." 

The i)rovision that no retroactive law 
shall be enacted is stricken out. Tlie 
qualifications for voters for t^^riitorial 
representatives, the word "understand- 
jngly." in the educational qualiiication.-;. 
is stricken out. requiring simply that 
they shall "read, write and S!>eak th.' 
Kni'lish or Hawaiian language." 

No change is made in the (lualiflca- 
tions for voters for senators. 

The provision in regard to the regis- 
tration of Hawaiian vessels was 
changed to read as follows: "That all 
vessels carrying Hawaiian registers on 
Aug. 12. IVJS. shall be entitled to be 
registered as American ves.sels. with 
the benefits and privileges api>c:iaining 

Section lo:;. in regard to the crown 
lands, was changed so as to eliminat • 
tlie clause confirmins all valid leas, s 
iit'W in existence. 

There are many technical cliangis,

ferred to as "the government ot 
Hawaii." it is changed Sii as to make it 
tlie territory of Hawaii. 


Washington. Dec. 22.— The attorney 
general has transmitted to congress the 
report of the commission appointed to 
prepare a code of civil laws for the 
territory of Ala»\JSa. The work has 
been completed, and it is urged that 
the code prepared by the commissiim 
should be adopted as soon as possible. 

The commission took the laws of 
Oregon, which were extended over 
Alaska in 1S84, as a basis for the ne»v 
code. Some provisions in relation to 
railroad and other corporations are 
omitted as it is thought congress 
should be left to legislate on this sub- 
ject, and some changes and additions 
are made in the laws relating to insur- 
ance and mining. 


Marchioness of Donegal Will So 
Spend Her Holiday. 

London, Dec. 22. — The marchioness of 
Donegal will eat her Christmas dinner 
in a London workhouse. Ill, miserably 
clad and apparently in acute destitu- 
tion, she applied for admittance to the 
Great Northern hospital, from which 
place she was removed to the Islington 
workhou.^e infirmary. She explained 
that she was homeless and not willing 
to communicat*; with tli»> wealthy 
friends of her husband, who i:-^ suffering 
frfiin pneumonia. The story of the lii*- 
of the marchioness is painful. She l?lt 
her husband in ISTo and in 1889 insti- 
tuted ■.;fparHtion proceedings. with 
which <ount*^r-i harges of miscondut t 
Avere made. 

I'nsavory det.Ttls of their conju^iil 
liff were made. 

The marchiones faib-d to obtain ali- 
mony and ha.s since received assist- 
ance from her friends. She was last 
heard of in May of the present year, 
when she broke her leg in a hotel ele- 
vator and was taken to a hospital. 

The marquis has had a troul<Iel 
financial career. He was declared a 
bankrupt in 1889 with liabilities esti- 
mated at i:"d8,81.'>. He then said he 
considered he was justifi«Ml in raising 
t;.'.(M).0<JO, in view of the fuc t that he had 
Jio prospects of succeeding to an estate 
of C'(t.OO<) a year. But. owing to th.' 
entail, he only succeeded to CISO a 
year. He was mi.xe<l up in financial 
floatation this year. He lent his name 
to a company prospectus which caused 
the Star to criticise him as "a peer 
wilh a record of disgracing the order to 
which he b»'longfd."

Disease weaves its web 
around people a little at a 
time. They are not danger- 
ously ill all at once. The 
heginning.-i of illness are 
mere trifles. First a little indigestion, per- 
haps; or headaches; or an occasional bilious 
turn. It is hard to realize how you are be- 
ing tangled up in the .strands of sickness 
until you are fairly caught. 

Nearly all serious illnesses begin with 
some stomach or liver trouble, or with a 
costive condition of the bowels. These 
functions have got to be put in good condi- 
tion before there can be any recovery from 
any disease no matter what its name or na- 
ture, and it is Dr. Pierce's Golden 
Medical Discovery act'' directly upon the 
liver and digestive organs that it has such a 
inar\-elous efTect tipon all diseases of mal- 

It gives the digestive system power to 
assimilate nourishment and make good 
blood : it drives out bilious poisons ; it 
creates the red, vitalising, life-giving ele- 
ments in the circulation; and builds up the 
weak and wasted places in every comer of 
the constitution. 

Taken in conjunction with Dr. Pierce'."* 
Pleasant Pellets, it relieves obstinate con- 
stipation and keeps the bowels in a per- 
fectly natural condition. 

Mrs. i;ila Howell, of Derby, Perry Co., Ind., 
writes : "In the year of iS94'l was taken with 
stomach trouble— nervous dyspepsi.n. There was 
a coldness in my stomach, and n weight which 
seemed like a rook. Even-thing that'l ate gave 
me great pain; I had a bearing down sensation; 
was swelled .ncross my .stomach ; had a ridge 
around my ri:;ht side, and in a short time I was 
bloated, i was treated bv three of our best phv- 
sicians hut pot no relief. Then Dr. Pierce's 
Colden Medical Discovery w;is recommemled to 
me and I got it. and comiiienced the of it. I 
began to sec a chancre for the better. I was so 
we:«k I ojuU not w.ilk .icross the rtxjm without 
nssi.>tance. I took Dr. Pierce'.s Golden Medical 
Discoven," and his •Favorite Prescription* and 
one bottle of the • Pleasant Pellets.' I hegan to 
improve very fast after the use of a few txiftles. 
The pliysicians who attended me said mv disease 
was leading into consumption. I quite a 
cough, and the home physician gave me up to 
die. I thank God that my cure is permauent."

coast by an important change made in 
thi schedule of the (?real Northern rail- 
way, that company havin.g decided to 
put on a limited train im that date 
leavin.g St. Paul at 9 a. m. immediately 
upon the arrival of the fast mail and

Two Men Instantly Killed and 

One Badly Injured Near 


S:indstone, Minn.. Dec^ 22.— In th • 
ear'y part of yesterday morning a blo(»d 
stainetl man walked into the bpot at 
Samlstone and mumbled some unintel- 
ligible words to a group of inquiring 
men. Further investigation showed 
him to be J. fteese. agent for the East- 
ern ilinnesota road at Partridge, eight 
miles east, and then it was remembeieil 
!hat he. wilh two companions, had lieen 
In Sandstone last ni.ght with a hand car 
for the purpose of nurchasin'-r t'lirist- 
mas prcstnts for their families. 

Wh.-'n IJcese was able to talk cidier- 
ently he tobi a story whieh caused a d<'- 
cided commotion ainon.g the gj-otip ef 
list•>n^|•s. It was that his two coni- 
jianions were lyin.g dead in the ditch a 
mile out of town. Hastily a party was 
organized and went out, only to timl 
the man's story confirmed b.v the badly 
nianglefl remains of Carl Larson and 
Hf nry Smith by the railroad track. 
They were cold and rigid and horrilily 

Poor Reese could shed no light on the 
tragedy except to say that with Larson, 
who is secti(m foreman at Partrldg'>. 
and Smith, who keeps a boarding house 
there, they had gone to Sandstone in 
tlie evening to liuy presents, and in re- 
turning were struck by a train. He was 
so dazed and injured that he could 
scarcely tell anything regarding the 
actual accident. 

The tv, (' dead men were lying amid the 
ruins of their Christmas parcels, and 
the scene was one which will never be 
forgotten liy the party who picked up 
the remains.

New York. Dec. 22.— In its review of 
the trade conditions the Iron Age says 

"The year 1898. with its extraordinary 
record for production, closes with a 
burst of activity unparalleled in the 
history of the industry, exceeding the 
year 1879. An enormous tonnage has 
been jilaced for 1899 delivery, but at very 
b>w prices. An increasing number ol 
producers having their order books In 
good shape for many months to come 
are virtually withdrawing from the 
market or are asking higher iirice.«». 

■The Western markers fi-r foundry 
iron have been C(»aiparatively quit'L 
during the past week, but there has 
been contiyued ucUvity in the East, 
where the furnaces had been relativ«dy 
lower for some time past. These fur- 
naces have now advanced prices and 
are calling a halt. 

"In steel material Pittsburg notes 
sales of one block of 2.'>.0(I0 tons of 
Uessemcr pig. In the I-:ast there have 
been a number of sales of round lots ot 
basic pig iron at the range of $10.25 to 

"There has not been much doing In 
steel. B::dst or West. Makers of biik-ts 
are firm on the basis of $16 Pittsburg 
and $17.;j,T to $17..")0 in Eastern Pennsyl- 
vania. Buyers, however, are resisting 
the advance. To what fxtent and in 
what manner the tin plate'consolldation 
has control of the supply of tin plate 
bars has not transriired. It is regarded 
as probable that some arrangement 
must have been made. 

"In the rail trade the event of the 
week has been the sale by the Mary- 
land Steel company of 90,000 tons of 
rails to Asiatic liussta: this following 
the sale of 40,000 tons to the same par- 
ties. The report of a sale of ;5.5,000 tons 
for Australian delivery cabled from 
London looks like a belated reference 
to an old transaction. The .Pennsyl- 
vaiiia railroad is in the market for a 
large lot of rails. . , 

"The wire trade Is develo.'iing

high prices have been paid'Iri' Can-

"Further orders have come to the 
plate mills East and West, anil they 
are now so overload d with work that

transaction was the sale of a lot of 40.-

for this season of the year, and the in- 
ditations point to a full volume of worn

The Evidence of Our Senses —What

Good Proof for Duluth

No deceiving echoes here.

Dr. Hill Suggests a Court to

New York, Dec. 22. — A special from 
Washington says: Dr. David J. Hill, 
assistant secretary of state, said that 
the disposition of the property of the 
Catholic church in the Philippines rests 
with congress and not with the state 
department. He continued: 

"1 should think that a court similar 
to that which was organized after the 
annexation of our Mexican possessions 
will be the proper way to determine the 
ownershiii of landed estates.. This 
court ot private land clainls has ex-

that the administration v.ill not pro-

made most ot" his money, dealing in 
Wall street .slocks. Old brokers say 
that these were the days when gold 
was picked up in the street, and the 
shrewd operatitms of the young finan-

he was nicknamed by his associates

Some of the local heavyweights were 
free sellers realizing handsome prohts. 
but commission house bu.ving absorbea 
all of their offerings. There are large 
orders here for shipment hut It Is almost 
an Impossibility to secure cars. Were it 
not for this a very large business woulii 
havi- bien transacted. The weather con- 
ditions are as bad as ever but may im- 
prove shortly. We still think we* will 
have much higher prices. 

There seems to be but little Interest 
taken in oats. 

I'rovlslons— Receipts of hogs at prin- 
cipal packing points have eased up con- 
siiifrably. What Utile laroduce thi,re was 
for s:l!e was for the packers. There ha.s 
been good commission house buying, ap

There was some foreign .selling of

B. E. Baker says: The wheat market 
ha:- for the last week given what seems 
to me to be very plain notice of what 
It is likely to do" and the man who gets 
le't will liave himself to blame. I think 
If you bu.v any wheat in th»- t;;s .\ (ui will 
have to liuv it pretty ouick. We have a 
small visibfe that will soon b^-gin to de- 
«rease. We .ire putting afloat and hav-- 
bct n through all the last six monlh.s 
iw >-thlr(ls of the wheat sent tt> import- 
ing countries. The price Is low; the 
m.irket. until within a few days, has 
had no help from anybody. The quality 
of the wheat is ic per bus higher than 
ff>»- a good many .o-ars until last year, 
y<ui all knov.- that "no« No. 2 spring ust-d 
to be iiur e uitract fjrade. I notice th;u 
our |.re:-s :iitribuies the sir.nglli in

talk won't last long. Corn has had the 
persistent he'.p of praeti.iill.v all corn

is a better purchase than corn. Hoi.e .mhi

Trading Was Tame and Fluctuations 
Followed a Narrow Rut. 

New York. Doc. 22.— The cotton market 
opened sioady with prices 1 point lower 
to 2 points higher. Speculation was slow 
and interesting features hard to tind dur- 
ing the early sessiiin. Initial English ca- 
bles were about as anticipated, receipts 
were moilerate and the weather news 
rather better than for some time. I'oi- 
hiwing the call priets slowl.v moved up 
t>r. ligiit outside bu.ving and scattered 
co\ering. started bv encouraging subse- 
quent l.,lverpool cables. Selling by leading 
bears arrested the advance later, after 
which trading became very tame and 
(lUv'tuaiions followeil a narrow rut. As 
the session piogress^-d there was men- 
or less >eattered tradin.g for the settling 
of accounts, customarv before the holi-

railroad to furnish the much-needed 
line. Perhaps some one of the logging 
roads now being constructed may even- 
tually be extended farther nofth and 
tap the gold region. It is probable that 
the Duluth merchants who would be 
greatly benefited by the opening up of 
such a means of transportation might, 
by offering strong inducements, per- 
suade the owners of one of these roads 
to build to Itainy Lake and divert tO 
this city a large part of the trade which 
is now handled over the circuitous route 
via Rat Portage from Winnipeg. This 
is a subject which should be considered 
when planning measures for the up- 
building of Duluth. and The Herald 
lommends it to the attention of the 
business men who are taking a deep in- 
terest in this subject.

Of course President McKinley did not 
select ex-Governor Merriam for secre- 
tary of the interior. He probably never 
considered for one moment the idea of 
appointing him to such a responsible 
position, and the statements in W'ash- 
ington dispatches that Merriam might 
be chosen were undoubtedly inspired by 
William himself. He likes to pose as a 
political factor, v hen the fact is that 
he is dead politically, and no one in 
official life in Washington pays any 
more attention to him than do the peo- 
ple of ^linnesota. The appointment of 
Mr. Hitchcock as the successor of Sec- 
retjir^' Bliss was decided on several 
days ago, but neither Merriam nor his 
limited number of friends knew any- 
thi i;t about it. It is amusing to read 
that Congressman Stevens of St. Paul 
went to the White House yesterday 
morning to urge Merriam's appoint- 
ment, at a time when the nomination 
of Mr. l"itchct)ck was already on its 
v.ay to the senate. And Stevens was 
accompanied by "Tim" Byrnes, of Min- 
neapolis, another relic of the old Mer- 
riam gang, who has been in th- liabjt 
of claiming that he was on the in- 
side" as to the president's intentions! 

It is sa^'e to say that President Mc- 
Kinley knows how obnoxious Meriiar.i 
i.s t4i the people of Minnesota, and 
furthermore it is certain that he would 
Tiot insult Senator Davis by n-imiii:; 
Itiiu for any po.iition of inipjrtan.'o. 


It is stated that the taking of testi- 
mony in the Tischer's creek bridge 
matter, which is to be started by ihe 
city council tomorrow afternoon, will 
be conducted behind dosed doors, that 
no newspaper men will be allowed to 
enter and that profound secrecy will 
be observed. Last Tuesday the county 
commissioners met to consider a propo- 
sition involving the purchase of a .set 
of abstract books and they went into 
secret session to discuss the subject 
and arrived at a decision behind clocked 
doors. Only a short time ago a city 
council committee held secret sessions 
to investigate certain charges preferred 
by William Craig against the old water- 
works management. These are only 
a few instances of the way in which 
the city councM committees and the 
county commissioners hide themselves 
from the public gaze while they con- 
sider matters in which every citizen is 

It is time that this dark lantern, star 
chamber system of conducting the 
public business was abandoned. There 
is no good reason for secret sessions of 
these public bodies, and the doors 
should be thrown open to the public on 
every and all occasions. The citizens 
have a right to know everything con- 
nected with the management of the 
city and county affairs, and the al- 
dermen and the commissioners have no 
right to exclude the citizens from any 
meetings of the council and the board 
or of their committees. No public in- 
terest will be injured by publicity, but 
secret sessions are conducive to the 
suppression of facts that the people 
are entitled to know. Secret sessions 
aid the carrying out of deals and 
schemes opposed to the public interest. 
Secret sessions enable the application 
of the whitewash brush to officials 
whose misdeeds or negligence should 
be exposed to the light of day. 

The people of Duluth want to know 
who is responsible for the Tischer creek 
bridge collapse. Any investigation of 
that subject conducted behind closed 
doors will be regarded by them as a 
farce, as it undoubtedly will be, if con- 
ducted in secret. There must be some- 
thing to hide, if publicity is feared. 
This is the natural inference. Who is 
it that is afraid to let the newspapers 
report the investigation and furnish 
the public with the stories of the wit- 
nesses called to testify concerning the 
mysterious collapse of the bridge? The 
members of the council cannot afford 
to suppress facts concerning the in- 
competency of city officials, and the 
citizens cannot be blamed for believ- 
ing that the investigation is to be con- 
ducted in secret for that very purpose. 
Let the investigation be conducted in 
PV>Jlic: Stop this star chamber mode of 
doing business! It is wrong in prin- 
ciple and baneful in effect. Throw the 
doors wide open!

"The evening paper," says the Tltu.s-

The Washington I'ost says that Repre- 
sentative Lawrence, of Massachusetts, is 
an independent thinker and docs not hesi- 
tate to express his thoughts. "We start- 
ed out," said Mr. Lawrence, "to light a 
war for the succor of the oppressed. Now 
We seem to be oppressing the succors." 

Mr. Kipling is again being attacked by 
the critics. One points out in the London 
Academy that in his story, "The Day's 
Work," the author describes a steamer of 
2.T*M> tons, measuring 240 feet long by 82 feet 
wide, and then puts aboard of her 4(h}0 
tons of dead weight. 

A Chicago lirm has just been fined $50 
and costs for violating the smoke ordin- 
ance. When will Duluth start after the 
abominable smoke nuisance? 

The News Tribune is worrying over the 
state debt of Massachusetts which, it 
says, amounts to $12.50(i,0()0. That is only 
a third larger than the debt of Duluth. 

The stealing of wheat should be left to 
those who can tlo it on a larger scale. 
Common car-sweeping stealings are vul- 
gar and ill bred. 

It is safe to say that when Admnal 
Dewey returns home, he will not seek to

Secret sessions of public bodies must 
cc.ise. The people have a right to know 
what their representatives are doing. 

Klla Wheeler Wilcox asks, in an East- 
ern paper, "Does life pay? ' Ask John D. 
Iv.jckefeller or Russell Sage. 

Now, If you were one of Brigham 
Ri berts" wives for instance, what would

A gentleman largely interested in the 
Rainy Lake gold district stated In an 
interview at Winnireg a few days ago 
that the trade from that region which 
Winnipeg enjoys is worth at least $100.- 
000 a year, and as the gold region de- 
velops, so will this trade increase. 

If we had direct railroad communi- 
cation with the Rainy Lake region, as 
we should have, a large poj'tion of that 
trade would come to Duluth. Winnipeg 
now transacts this large amount of busi- 
ness via Rat Portage, but next year 
will prol>ably see the completion of the 
railroad now being built on the Can- 
adian side of the boundary from a point 
on the Port Arthur, Duluth & Western 
road westerly through the Seine Rivet 
country to Winnipeg. 

With, reciprocal trade relations estab- 
lished by treaty, of which there is now 
a good prospect, the Duluth wholesale 
houses could capture the large and 
steadily growing trade of that region, 
provided they had means of transport- 
ing their merchandise direct by rail. 
It was thought at one time that the 
Duluth & Iron Range road would be ex- 
tended to the gold region, but that hope 
has vanished. Neither has the Duluth, 
Missabe & Northern shown a disposi- 
tion to build farther northward, and 
therefore we must wait for some other 


From a hero admired by the American 
people. Lieut. Hol)son has fallen to a 
low place in their estimation because 
of the disgusting exhil>itions he has 
given in the ki.ssing line at Chicago and 
KanHa.«? City. He lectured at Denver, 
last night, Imt the kissing bee was de- 
clared off, probably because some per- 
son has told the lieutenant in plain 
language that his recent actions have 
disgusted those who previously delight- 
ed to do him honor. 

When he first sprang into fame, Hob- 
son displayed a sense of modesty that 
gained him further admiration, and it 
is too bad that he should have dis- 
graced himself as he did at Chicago 
and Kansas City, simply because a lot 
of half-baked misses and madames de- 
sired to practice osculation on a man 
who is perhaps no braver than thou- 
sands of others that have not had an 
opportunity to display their courage 
and valor. It is pleasing to notice that 
the disgusting scenes witnessed at Chi- 
cago iind Kansas City were not re- 
peated at Denver, but there is danger 
that the lieutenant may fall again, and 
the best thing the navy department can 
do is to cancel his leave of absence and 
.send him at once to the Philippines or 
some other distant point. 

Omaha Bee (Rep.): Senator Davis of the 
peace commission thinks there should be 
an alliance between the I'nlted States, 
Great Britain and Japan for the protec- 
tion of their Interests in the far East. The 
Minnesota senator doesn't see why other 
nations should object to such an alliance 
and he bravely says "if they do object 
let them." If there was anv necessity 
for the Cnited States entering into a 
formal alliance with Great Britain and 
Japan it would not be deterred then- 
from by what other nations might think 
about it, but there is no such necessiiv, 
nor is it likely to arise unless we insist 
upon becoming mixed up in the com- 
plications of European powers. We 
seem. inJeeJ. to be drifting in that dl- 
r-H'tlon. but there is reason to hope that 
we shall halt before going quite so far. 

As it is, there appears to be a sufti- 
ci?ntly well-derined understanding be- 
tween Great Britam and the rnited 
St ites that they will stand together for 
the defense and protection of iheir in- 
terests in the far East, while it is most 
tiistindly tlie i)olicy of Japan, clearly 
tinderslood and fully appreciated bv 
her statesmen, to maintain the clo.sest 
I o-islble relations with this country and 
ICnglaiul. Thertx can be no sort of" doubt 
where Japan would be found if ihe 
I'nlted States needed her assistance in 
protecting interests common to both of 
them, such as would be involved in 
kep|)lng Cuba open to international 
(ommerce. The I'nited States »loes not 
need and does not want any foreign alli-

Two Men Killed and Three Injured by 
An Explosion. 

La Grande. Ore., Dec. 2_'.— An explosion 

of dynamite occurred four miles west 

of Huron, in which tlve men were se- 

rii>usiy injured, two of whom will die. 
The name.s of the injured cannot be 
l-arned. Three heavy l)lasts of dyna- 
mite were placed in the rocky side of the 
canyon to he excavated and tiri'd. Two 
exploded, but the third was slow and 
the men thought the fuse had failed 
and. after waiting a while, returned to 
the hole, when the charge exploded with 
tei rifle force. 



The Emmons County Record, refer- 
ring to .some Manilla correspondence,

Company A break the monotonv of 'camp 
life by shooting craps, or by "indulging 
In draw.' Now. what our correspondent 
means is that the soldier bovs often go 
out to shoot a bird of prey" called the 
crap. It is a very wild llerce species of 
biid that I.s indigenous to the I'hilip- 
plnes. and more than once it has at- 
tempted to carry off some of the small- 
er members of Company A. The 'game 
of draw' that Johnny refers to is just 
a brief way t>f stating that an artist in 
the regiment has gotten up a drawing 
class and Is teaching the Iwys to make 
pictures. It will thus be seen thai our 
Missouri slope lads are improving the 
shining hours of their leisure Uuring

Superintendent of the Ferry Seed 
Company Commits Suicide. 

Detroit, Mich., Deo. 22.— Early today 
John A. Severns, superintendent of the 
D. M. Ferry Seed company, committed 
suicide at his residence. Mrs. Severns 
was aroused from her sleep by the 
shots, and found her husband lying 
dead on the kitchen lloor, with one bul- 
let in his head, another through hi.s 
heart and the revolver still clutched in 
his hand. 

Mr. Severns had been in poor health 
for some time, and Is said to have 
shown signs of insanity for the past 
few days. For nineteen years Mr. Sev- 
erns had been connected with D. M. 
Ferry, and was one of their trusted em- 
ployes. He was 40 years of age and a 
son of Judge Severns of the I'nlted 
States district court of Grand Rapids.

was in the city Tuesday en route to Me- 
(lora with a prisoner. Jack Trusley, who 
killed a man named Barrett at Willislon

that the murdered man had l>een taken

shelter. These aceommodatioiis gavt.'

He grabbed his rilie and l>egan shooting. 
'I'lie (irst shot njissed, liui ihe second

Twin Cities May Not Make 

Much Out of the Rate 

to Bemidji. 

10% OFF 


Great Northern May Give 

Ouluth Equal Rates to 

Southwestern Points. 

The Great Northern Uairoad com- 
pany has nut yet deeided whether, af- 
ter the Park Rapids branch is com- 
pleted to Cass Lake, it will make the 
same rate from the Twin Cities to 
Fosston branch points as from Duluth 
or whether it will allow this city the 
differential to which it is entitled by 
reason of the shorter mileage. The 
Northern Pacific recently extended the 
Brainerd & Northern railroad to Be- 
midji, on the Fo.«ston branch. thus 
grivin^ that point a direct connection 
with St. Paul and Minneav>olis. It also 
made the rate from the Twins to Be- 
midji the same as the Great Northern 
rate from Duluth. althou.tjh the dis- 
tance is sixty miles farther. The rate to 
Bemidji will have to be met by the 
Great Northern, although it will not ht^ 
necessary to do so to other points not 
touched by the Northern Pacific. 

Duluth wholesale merthants are n">t 
insistent on the Great Northern allow- 
ing Duluth to retain the advantage 
over the Twin City merchants in the 
Fosston branch territory, which is na- 
turally hers because of the difference 
in distance and it is not certain that the 
jobbers in the Twins will ask to be put 
on an equal basis with those of Duluth 
in iheii- trade with those points. 
Should it be deemed necessary to make 
the Duluth and St. Paul and Minne- 
apolis rate to Fosston branch points 
the same, the Great Northern man- 
agement will be compelled to give Du- 
luth an equal rate with them to South- 
western points. Such a rate would 
open to Duluth jobbers a large field on 
the Great Northern's .southwestern line 
in which they cannot now do business 
by reason of the advantage which the 
jobbers in the Mississippi river towns 
have in rate.*'. The Duluth merchants 
would probably be better satisfied to 
have a chance to do business in the 
southwest than to have a numopoly in 
Fosston branch territory. Before the 
rates are definitely decided on the 
Great Northern officials will consult the 
wishes of jobbers in the rival jobbing 


No Likelihood That S. D. Smith Will 
Be Prosecuted. 

The fact that the county lx)ard re- 
fused to offer a reward for the arrest 
of Samuel D. Smith means that that in- 
fllvidual v.ill be allowed to go Jiis own 
way in all probability, as it will l>e im- 
possil'le for Sheriff Sargent to do any- 
thing without the customary reward, 
as police officials in distant towns are 
not likely to exert themselves Tor noth- 

The authorities here came within an 
ace of catching Smith once before. 
while Mrs. Smith, v.ho was punished 
for her participation in Smith's crime 
by a sentence of thirteen months in 
Stillwater was serving out her sentence. 
Sm.ith visited Stillwater after Mrs. 
Smith was released on parole, and was 
working as a domestic in a Stillwater 
home. The local authorities in Still- 
water .'-aw Smith, recognized him and 
telegraphed to County Attorney Arbury 
to inquire if he was wanted. The reply 
was immediate and positive, and it was 
to the effect that he was wanted very 
much. The local Dogberry of Stillwater 
received the reply in the evening, and 
made up his mind that he would go 
around and see Smith in the morning 
and arrest him. He therefore settled 
back for a comfortable evening. Next 
morning he started out after Smith. 
Y'U* he had taken alarm in some way 
and had made his escape. How he be- 
came warned that he was watched was 
never known. 

Mrs. Smith is in Detroit, or was the 
last time she was heard from. She was 
clerking in a department store there. 
County Attorney Arliury, who tried her 
for hei- crinif*. walked inti) the store a 
year or so ago, after Mrs. Smith had 
been released frf>m Stillwater and had 
left the pla.-'e. The first person he saw 
>vas Mrs. Smith, and she saw him at 
the same time. She seemed as pleased 
to see him as though he had befriended 
her instead of trying her for a crime. 
So far as is known she is a respectable 
member of society, and has been ever 
since her release. 


Telephone Connection Can Now Be 
Made by All Subscribers. 

Tlie telephone line to Cloquet was 
formally opened yesterday in the pres- 
ence of a large number of prominent 
business men at the offices <tf the Du- 
luth Telephone company, in the First 
National Bank building. Six receivers 
were connected, so that there was 
ample oi^portunity for all to hear. The 
Cloquet 'phone is in the McKinnon 

Secretary Taussig said that the line is 
twenty-eight miles long, but that con- 
versation is carried on over fifty-six 
miles of wire, for it is really a metallic- 
circuit. He said that the new line 
would bring much l)usiness to Duluth 
which now goes to the Twin Cities. 

The test was entirely satisfactory. 
The playing of a piano at Cloquet in th ; 
same room with the 'phone was heard 
distinctly. At this end a mandolin was 
played for the benefit of the Cloquet 

The line Is now open for business, and

St. Paul Jobbers Informed 

They Must Watch the 

Zenith City. 

Sl. Paul. Dec. 22.— Seventy-live cltizi ns 
and business men of Walker and Uemldji 
wore entertained in St. Paul today and to- 
night as the guests of the Jobbers' union. 
A committee of fifteen members from tlie 
jobbers' union met their guests at the 
W' hotvl in Minneapolis at noon and 
brought them to St. I'aul on chartered In- 
lerurban cars. A stop of an hour was 
mauf at the new state capltol to allow; the 
visitors to Inspect the building and to 
watch the work of preparing the marble 
for the structure. The parly proceedeii 
to ihe Commercial club, where dinner was 
seived. Later in the afternoon and even- 
ing the guests were shown through the 
wholesale houses and entertained by ilje 
members of the union. They will leave 
tor home at ^:UU o'clock tomorrow morn- 

The excursion originated with K. R. 
Hoar, general manager of the Brainerd 
& Northern railway, to celebrate the 
opening of the new Walker & Bemulji 
branch of his company's road. The ex- 
cursionists left home Tuesday morning 
and arrived in Minneapolis in the even- 

Kichard Gordon, chairman of the rece;)- 
tion committee of the Jobbers' union, was 
the master of ceremonies at the banquet 
at the Commercial club this afternoon, 
and introduced Mayor A. li. Klefer. who 
made an address of welcome. 

Mr. Street, of Pemldji. replied for the 
excursionists. He said that St. Paul had 
for forty years been the center of politi- 
cal and commercial power in the North- 
west and that it remained with her eiti- 
zens to continue to hold that proud dis- 
tinction. The northern part of the state 
hati direct connection with the head of the 
lakes and St. Paul should not overlook 
the importance of its rival. * Duluth, for 
the trade of the section. The opening uf 
the new line g.ive direct access to St. Paul 
and he hoped that the jobbers would ap- 
preciate the value of the new branch as 
a feeder to their trade. A vast new terri- 
tory of unrivaled richness was opened. 
Its timber and agricultural resources 
could only be estimated and Its Impor- 
tance to St. Paul was of the greatest. 

At the conclusion of his remarks Mr. 
Street offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted bv a rising vote: - 

••Resolved, that the citizens of Walker 
and Demidji. accompanying the excursion 
to the Twin Cities, take this opportunity 
to extend to the Brainerd & Nortnern. the 
Northern Paclflc railwav companies and 
the lommercial clubs and Jobbers' unions 
of the Twin Cities their sincere thanks for 
the courtesy extended to them on this 
trip, and that the eommercial rela- 
tions that have heretofore existed mav 
be increased by this exchange of visits

S. T. Harrison's Enormous Turkey. 

S. T. Harrison has received from a 
friend in Fulton, Mo., an enormous 
Christmas turkey. It eclipses the 
famous President Cleveland turkey «if 
a few years ago. That bird weighed 
twent> -eight pounds, while Mr. Harri- 
son's weighs twenty-nine pounds. This 
weight was taken after it was dressed 
and tirawn and a!l read.v for the oven. 
Mr. Harrison is afraid that the family- 
cooking range will have to have an ad- 
dition built to take in the enormous 


Frank P^rne, of Buffalo, and Dal Haw-

fight twenty-tlve rounds at the light -

Canal and Dyke CommisMon 

Meets and Decides Upon 

a Plan. 


A Committee Will Prepare 

One to Be Presented 

to Congress. 

The canal and dyke commission ap- 
ptdnted liy President Cochrane of the 
city council met last evening at the 
office of Capt. McDougall and di.scussed 
the method to be employed in bringing 
the matter before congress. It was de- 
cided to have the comptroller prepare 
a statement of the amount expended by 
the city for the canal and dyke, and a 
memorial will be prepared and sent to 
congress asking reimbursement. 

TJiose present were: Judge 
Ensign, Capt. McDougall, H. B. 
J. H. Cpham, J. H. Crowley, 

J. D. 



Crassweller, H. F. Greene. C. A. Towne. 
A. H. Comstock. D. E. Stevens, C. F. 
l-,eland, A. M. Marshall. A. B. Wolvin. 
Luther Mendenhall. P. S. Anneke. This 
comprises almost the entiie committee. 

At Capt. McDougall's suggestion 
Judge Ensign was made chairman. H. 
13. Moore was chosen secretary. Judge 
Ensign read the resolutions of the coun- 
cil setting forth what seemed to it to 
be the facts, hut according to Judge 
Ensign the statements as to the litiga- 
tion are inaccurate. Judge Ensign was 
asked to give brietly the history of ihe 
building of the canal and dyke and sub- 
sequent tearing up of the dyke. He has 
been for soine time preparing data for 
a history of that interesting period in 
Duluths career, and was engaged in 
the work when the council brought this 
matter uj). His account was very in- 

In 1870. ho said, the Lake Superior & 
Mississippi River railroad was com- 
pleted and began the building of a 
breakwater and some terminal facili- 
ties. In March. 1871, an appropriation 
of $60,000 was secured from congress, 
all to be expended on the breakwater. 
The government plan provided foi 
building this out 2260 feet. About this 
time a young engineer named Cuiit. 
Cuyler was bold enough to advance the 
proposition o* cutting a canal through 
Minnesota Point. He made a report to 
his superior otHcer. MaJ. Wheeler, pro- 
posing three plans for improving Du- 
luth harbor. The first was to improve 
the natural entry and dredge up the 
bay: the second, to cut a canal, and th» 
third, to build a breakwater. He 
favored the second plan, believing that 
commerce would grow so rapidly here 
that the titne required to carry out the 
first plan would seriously block busi- 

Maj. Wheeler favored the first plan, 
believing that there would be no such 
development of commerce here as Capt. 
Cuyler anticipated. 

Capt. Cuyler's sugge.«rtion, however, 
gave the very energetic people of this 
new community an idea, and they acted 
on it very quickly. Maj. I'pham was 
employed to dig a canal through Min- 
nesota Point. I'rotests came at once 
froiTi the Wisc(msin people, but while 
the.v were getting down to action Maj. 
Upham was digging as hard as he could. 
The Superior people were late in getting 
their action started, and Maj. Upham 
wiuked night and day and had a good 
opening by the time a temfiorary in- 
junction was sei^ured in June. 1S71. Tiie 
giound for securing it was that tht 
current of the St. Louis river would i»e 
diverted and the government work at 
the natural entry injured. The case 
was brought before Judge Nelson, but 
he owned property in Superior and de- 
clined to hear it. It was then taken be- 
fore Judge Miller at Dubuque and the 
injunction was granted. 

In one of thj atfidavits of the lawyers 
it was suggested that a water-tight 
dyke across the i)ay would do away 
with the danger. This gave rise to the 
building of the dyke. Judge Ensign said 
the government engineers reported that 
there was need of it. and the city had to 
l)uild it. "It was forced upon us." he 
said, '•and I have always believed that 
we have a just claim against the gov- 
ernment for it." 

Maj. I'pham. who was present, said 
Judge p:nsign's history was correct. 
The exact amount expended has not as 
yet been obtained. Judge Ensign 
thinks it was about $270,000. Maj. ITp- 
ham says that canal l)onds to the 
amount of $.")0.000 and dyke bonds to

K. F. .Ml is Sr Sons, who were recently 
reported to have closod a lease for the 
Hartmann and Mallett property on the 
Vermilion range, registered at »!ie 
Spi'lding today. Mr. Allis has been on 
a trip fo the iron country and is now on 
his way home. To a Herald report.>r he 
declined to talk concerning the plans of 
the rirm on th^Vermilion range, say- 
ing that they had not yet been fully de- 
termined, and that h? did not wish at 
this lime to take the public into his 
confidence. He said that there was some 
t'Uih and some guc^ssing in the report* 
published in connection v.ith the leas- 
ing of the Vermilion property, bul that 
he did not think it worth while at 'his 
tim.e to separate the truth from the 
falsehood. When asked if it was tru'- 
that it was their intention to smelt ore 
taken from their mine in Duiuth or 
vicinity, he said that he was not at lib- 
crtv to say anything on that subjecT. 
He admitted that the firm intended Ic 
do some development work during ihe 
coming year.

Th»* Po;)ulist city commit tt-c 
at Its meeting last evening in favor of 
holding a convention. The dt^talls o. ill 
lie arranged at a meeting to be held 
Friday night. 

Xo action was taken in the line of 
disciplining Z. il. Austin, as was in- 
tended, the parties who were in pos- 
session of the evidence on which action 
was to be taken not producing it before 
the committee. Those who were in- 
formed that the evidence was on hand 
say that this forlx?arancc on their part 
can fairly lie regarded as an exhibition 
of the lieautiful virtue of charity, so 
rare in politics. As but three weeks 
will elapse before the committee will 
be reorganized, it was agreed by ihorfe 
present that it would be better to let 
Mr. .A,ustin die a natural death, a.^. il 
were, rather than do anything that 
might spoil his chances for the job ot 
deputy insuranc < commissioner, which 
he has bc^cn after since he found thai 
he could not land the commi-ssioner- 
ship. and which, it is reported, he is 
now reasonalily sure of olnaining. One 
ol" th.? meml)ers of the ctmimittee said 
today that there is another considem- 
tion, too. and il is that if Mr. Austin 
gets the iHisition it will take him away 
trom Duiuth. So. in the interest of 
peace and harmony and the wcUaij ol 
the silver cause in Duiuth. it was de- 
cided to throw no obstacles in Mr. Aus- 
tin's way. , , 

Mr. Austin, in a letter filled wilh lan- 
guage not calculated f<n- the edification 
of ears polite, has written denying the 
statements in The Herald coneerning 
-lis utterances in the Twin Cities de- 
rogatorv to the silver cause and thOf-;e 
identified with it. This letter he en- 
closed to a prominent Populist and 
member of thi> city committee here, 
with the reciuest that the latter "give 
the lie" to tne article referred li, and 
ask The Herald if it was willing to 
pulilish the letter of der.ial. The gen- 
tleman replied that in the interest of 
<lec.'ncv he mu't refuse to ask its pub- 
liealion and it could not with pniprieiy 
hive l>oen i.ulillshcd in ful!. TV..^ gentle-

Great Affection Lxhibited for It by 
Numerous Simians. 

Se\eral weeks ago a monkey was born 
it the I'hiladelphia zoo, and <he whole 
monkey eolony fell in love wilh it, says 
I'ne Phihidebihia Encpilrcr. Different ones 
i-hared in foialling and coddling it, and 
the quarrels and kncK'K-clowns which oc- 
curred in the. efforts of the monkeys tcj 

gel possession of it produced some re- 
markably ludicrous scenes. 

The\ all seemed to be just as thor- 
< unhly in love with the little creature as 
' ver a family of girls were with an infaiu 
brother. The mother ajiiieared lo realize 
that ihey regarded it with affec-iion, and 
she undertook lo cultivate this excellent 
iVeling by loaning it out to others to 

The- other mondiiK there was siu'h an 
uproar in ilie monkey-house that the 
watchman liasteiied lo the scene of dis- 
turbance. He found the army of nioii- 
ke\ s in a circle around one of their iiiini- 
ber, chattering and shrlekinrc. while the>- 
I Limbered over c;ii<- an<Uher. i-oll'-d about 
Ihe Jloor. and indulged in other strange 
and unaccountable antics. If Bedlam had 
been turned loose ill the bi^' cage the coa- 
I'usion could iioi have been more, the up- 
roar greater, or the sc-ene more ludicrous. 

Per several moments the watchman 
stood, an amused spectator, astonished 
and bewildered Jit the straiiKe i>erform- 
aiice. when suddenly one of the larger of 
ihe cunning creatures advanced lo the 
monkey in the cent»-r. Seizing the infant, 
which up to this time was not observed 
by the man. the !ar>;e monkey gave a big 
leap and made off with it. I'li the side 
<d' the cage he ran like a sciuirre!. holdiii--f 
the baby in one arm and climbine with 
the other, while tifty more monkeys witli 
lungs like brass tea kettles, followed in 
hi.t pursuit, wilh the frenzied mother, all

full extent of their vocal c-apacity.

A medical friend calls my attention 
to 'an article that appeared in the Brit- 
ish Medical Journal of Dec. 12 on the 
defective medical arrangements during 
Ihe Soudan campaign, says London 
Truth. Many of the allegations there 
made (by an eye witness) are of so 
serious a character that they demand 
further notice, for the only conclusion 
from them is that the medical staff al- 
lowed and the hosi>ital arrangements 
were utterly inadequate for the de- 
r.uinds made upon them. 

Had the casualites at Atbara and

Homesteaders on the Copper 
le Dazzled With 
Visions of Wealth. 


Houghton. Aliih., Dec-. 22.— (Spe'-ial 
to The Herald.)— Sevtral score of 
homesteaders, who located sections i-n 
Sovernment land.s lyins on the copper 
range between Houghton and Onto- 
nagon are dazzled, by visions of sud- 
den wealth. Promotei-s and broker.s 
want the lands for coiTper mines and 
men who could not get trusted foi* a 
j>air of shoes six months ago now hold 
their rugged '•farms" at fmm SM.OOO to 
?-'.50.0«>0 each. 

Xever in the history of the county 
was there such a rapid development of 
a mining property as that now under 
way at the Arcadian. it is hut a little 
more than a year ago since Nate Leo- 
pold, of Chicago, put a number of men 
to work at what was then a desolated 
spot scarcely ever frequented. Some- 
thing like si.x months ago the Arcadian 
Copper company was organized aiW 
since then the Arcadian has enjoyed a 
season of activity seldom equalled. 
Work is not confined to any one de- 
jiariment. but is on a general order and 
undertaken to bring the mine to the 
point of production at the earliest pos- 
sible period. 

The coming few weeks will likely wit- 
ness a commencement of mining oper- 
ations at th.» Mass Consolidated group 
of mines. It will be the policy of the 
management ti go carefully after the 
future plans are decided upon and not 
spend a dollar where it will havt- to he 
expended again. The company is tak- 
ing much .satisfaction fnon th*' shaft

CalumL t— The largv number of specu- 
lators in the copper country, especially 
those holding any great number of 
shares in the Arnold mining property, 
are on the anxif>us seat and havt- been 
there since Saturday, when it was ru- 
mored about thai there was soon to 
be an assessment of ?2 per .■'hare called. 
A great many bought stock when it 
was quoted at $17 and S18. and as it is

From Edwin P. Radford, superinten- 
dent of the Wiseonsin Land and Lum- 
ber comi'any. the JMenominee Herald 
learns this coUv-erning the present win- 
ter's operations at Hermansville. The 
hardwood Hooring factory is kept in 
operation the year around, l)ut the com- 
pany's two sawmills are closed down 
awaiting the input of stock. However, 
enough has been brought in to warrant 
the starting up of the hardwood mill 
about Jan. 1. Regarding the amount 
of logs of all kinds to be put in this 
season. Mr. Radford said that fullv 
IS.oiio.OoO feet w ould l)e cut and banked. 
This is about 20 per cent moie than was 
gotten out last season. 

Proceedings have been instituted 
against the b.mdsmen of the ex-county 
treasurer i-f Delta, whom Mr. Dressei-. 
the expert accountant who recently 
inail^' a thorough investigation of the 
county's financial condition, found 
short in their accounts. 

S. X. Dutrhei-. the well known banker 
of Newberry, and prosecutin.g attorney 
of Luce county, says that new- settlers 
are locating in Luce county, and that 
its rich agricullinal resources are be-

ment Mr. Dutcher is doing muih. As 
agent of the I'alms estate, w hich owns

Chicago, D.c. 22.— The Chronicle says: 
Thert! are strong indications that the 
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and the 
Chicago. Rock Island & Pacific roads 
are figuring on extending their lines to 
the Pacific coast. The absoi-ption of the 
Hawaiian and Philippine islands by this 
country, it is expect^»d by the owners of 
these roads, will open up an immense 
transcontinental rail business, lx)th east 
and west-bound. The recent deal by 
which the Santa Fe will have Its own 
line into San Francisco in the spring 
has awakened the ofTicers of the com- 
peting semi-transcontinental roads. 

An ollicer of one of the Western ronds 
who has Just c<»nie from tiie coast and 
who takes a keen interest in railroad 
affairs out there, saitl: "I would not 
Ic suri)rised to wake up some morning 
and lind the transcontinental situation 
further complicated by the announce- 
ment that the Hurlington was to be ex- 
tended to the Pacific ocean. The Bur- 
lington is a good deal nearer the coast 
than most people imagine, and 1 under- 
stand that this road has been surveying 
through Idaho all summer— one line 
through Nez Perce jiass and anothei 
through Lola pass. I understand also 
that two or three independent lines 
that are now being built in Western 
Idaho and Northeastern Oregon are 
intended eventually to form part of the 
proposed western extensions of the Bur- 

Another point of interest in this con- 
nection is the fact that the Burllngtot. 
is a large hf)lder of valuable tcTminai 
and dock properties at Gray's harbor, 
which would be of great value to the 
company when it enters the Oriental 
trade. Such an extension would a'so 
form a sort of short route from Tacoma 
to New Orleans. 

Denver is now the western terminus 
of the Rock Islanil, and Billings Is the 
end of the Burlington trac'ks. It has 
been reported that the former com- 
pany would soon punhase the Colorado 
Midlaiid. which would place its' t r- 
niiiiu:: 4iii) miles farther west. I'.illirgr., 
Mom., ihe end of the I'urlin.gton, is 
PJ20 miles from Tacoma. or a little far- 
thei- than Ogden is from San Francisco. 
While President Purdy of the Rock 
Island denies the report that his com- 
pany is figuring on absorbing the Mid- 
land, nothing definite can be learned re- 
garding the Burlington's intentions.

Town of Canosia Wants to 

Get Rid of Some Bonded 



Grand Lake and Dinham, 

Formerly In Canosia, 

Assumed None of It. 

towns of 
to compel 
its bonded 

The township of Canosia this morning 
began a suit through H. "B. Frybersjer, 
its attorney, against the 
Grand L.ake and Dinham 
them to bear a share of 
dcdjt. The defendant towns are off- 
springrs of Canosia, which originally 
included all of the territory now di- 
vided between the three towns. In 
1892. before the first division was made, 
the town of Canosia was bonded for 
$10,000. and the Ixjnds are now all due. 
Two of them for $1000 each, v.ith inter- 
est, have been paid, but the balance are 
unpaid. . 

In 1895 the county board carved out 
from the original town of Canosia the 
town of Grand Lake, and gave it r. 
separate existence. The following year 
the town of Dinham was cut out and 
named after the justly celebrated com- 
missioner of that name, and it was also 
given a separate existence, which it still 
maintains. The residents of the original 
town feel that the new towns have too 
good a thing, getting off without pay- 
ing their share of the debt, so the suit 
was brought to compel them to assume- 
their pro rata share. 

In addition to this it is alleged in the 
complaint that in 189H the town of Can- 
oria had S:;488.11 with which to t,akf' up 
the bonds as the came due, and that in 
the failure of the Marine National 
bank this money was swept away. 
Since then $1744.05 has been received in 
dividends. This money, it is claimed, 
was not lost through the carelessness 
of the town ofHcials, and the court is 
asked to adjudge that the defendant 
towns shall bear their pro rata share of 
this loss. 

The town of Canosia has also ex» 
pended large sums for improv^'inents, 
and it is believed that the new towns 
should share this exvH'nse also. The 
court is asked to mandamus the towns 
of Grand Lake and Dinham and compel 
them to stand their share.

Laborers on County Roads 

Can Now Get the Amounts 

Due Them. 

It will Ije good news to those laborers 
who toiled on the roads of this county 
during the summer and fall to hear that 
the appeals that tied up their claims for 
wages some weeks ago have all been 
disn)issed. They can therefore get thfir 
money at any time, and there are some 
of them, it is said, who need it very 
much. Most of the men who work on 
the roads are poor men, and it is said 
that there has been some deprivation 
among them as a result ot' ths appeals 
that tied up all of their bills. 

The bills for road work that were ap 
pealed from were allowed by the couiity 
board at different meetings, and they 
were appealed from l»y seven taxpayers, 
according to the legal provisions foi 
such appeals. There were over 100 ap- 
peals on the start, and the proceedings 
tied up everything in the nature ol 
claims for wages and board on any of 
the roads whose validity had been at- 
tacked in other proceedings. Subse- 
quently all claims under $25 were re- 
leased, as the law makes it optional 
with the county attorney whether he 
shall entertain appeals from such small 
claims or not. The dismissal was at his 

Yesterday, however, the parties to the 
suit agreed upon a dismissal of all of 
the suits, and the stipulation dismissing 
them was filed today, signed by all of 
the attorneys Interested in the cases. 
There were three exceptions, however, 
in which the appellants thought there 
would be no deprivation and in which 
it was thought there were good cases. 
The exceptions were John K. Meining, 
Louis Meining and George Tischer. 

The dismissal was made because it 
was felt that whether the rf>ads were 
valid or not, or whether the county 
board had any right to order the work 
done or not. the laborers themselves 
were not the parties at fault, and as 
they had worked for the county In good 
faith they should receive pay for it.

Rollinger, the Alleged Wife 

Murderer, Stares Blankly 

at Lena Hecker. 


Points of Remarkable Simil- 
arity Between His Case 
and Luetgert's. 

Chicago, Dec. 22. — The coroner's in- 
quest was begun today in the case of 
Mrs. Michael Rollinger, who, the police 
assert, was murdered and partially cre- 
mated by her husband. The accused 
man somewhat startled the police and 
spectators when confronted by Lena 
Hecker, the woman for whose sake the 
crime is alleged to have been committed, 
by stolidly staring at her and then de- 
claring that he did not know her and 
had never even met her before. This 
action on the accused man's part, 
coupled with his apparent utter indif- 
ference to his surroundings, lead the 
police to believe that Rollinger is 
feigning insanity. 

The Journal today points out twenty 
points of remarkable similarity between 
the Rollinger case and that of Adolph 
Luetgert, now serving a life sentence 
for wife murder Love of a woman 
other than the wife is asserted to have 
been the leading cause of both alleged 
murders. Each of the murders, it is 
claimed, was by strangulation. Both 
suffered business reverses prior to the 
alleged crimes. Luetgert and Rollin- 
ger were well acquainted with each 
other and lived in the same quarter ot 
the city. In the Rollinger case, as in 
that of Luetgert, a wedding ring will 
play an important part in the estab- 
lishment of the corpus delicti. Both 
men quarrelled continually with their 
wives. Luetgert was a sausagemaker 
and Rollinger a butcher. 

Mrs. Rollinger's body has been ex- 
humed and her wedding ring cut from 
her linger. 

As a result of the Inquest, Rollinger 
was held without bail on a charge of 
murder, and Lena Hecker was ordered 
detained as a witness. In her testi- 
mony before the coroners jury. Miss 
Hecker stated that Rollinger had asked 
her to marry him, saying that in two 
nil nths' time "everything would be all 

Witness testified that Rollinger beat 
his wife frequently. 


Representative Nelson Says He Will 
Do All He Can. 

Hon. N. C. Nelson, of Two Harbors, 
representative-elect of the legislatuic 
from the Fifty-first district, came to 
Duluth today to meet with the mayor 
and city council and talk over with 
them matters in connection with pio- 
po.sed legislation at the coming session 
of special interest to Duluth. In an 
interview with a Herald reporter thi.« 
afternoon Mr. Nelson said: 

"I am not informed in regard to the 
salient features of the delinquent tax 
law, which is to be discussed at the 
meeting of the council thte afternoon, 
together with other matters, but I wish 
to say that while I am in the legislature 
I will do all in my power to assist in 
procuring any legislation wanted by the 
people of Duluth. I will work just as 
hard for Duluth as though I lived here 
instead of at Two Harbors, for I con- 
sider my.self as much the represc-ntative 
of this city as any other member of the 
delegation. I am particularly Interested 
in securing needed amendments to the 
game laws and in getting appropriations 
for roads and bridges in this part of the 
state, and that I may l>o of some service 
in this direction will endeavor to got 
placed on the game and roads and 
bridges committees." 

Mr. Nelson will go to St. Paul next 
week to engage quarters and get settled 
for the winter in advance of the open- 
ing of the session.

England Willing to Relinquish 

All Interest In the 

Isthmian Canal. 


Engl'^^J Will Ask Other Con- 

'.Visions on the Part 

of America. 

o • 

w York. Dec. 23. — A special to th(^ 
^ aid from Washington says: 
;.-.- '11 danger of further friction be- 
twetn the United States and Great Bri- 
tain over the construction of the Ni- 
caragua canal will shortly be removed 
by tho abrogation of the Clayton-Bul- 
wer treaty. 

Your correspondent is in a position to 
authoritatively state that Sir Julian 
Pauncefote. the British ambassdor, has 
received, or will receive within the next 
few days, positive Instructions to enter 
upon negotiations with Secretary Hay 
for tlie abrogation of the convention re- 
ferred to, and the preparation of a nev.- 
treaty guaranteeing the neutrality of 
the canal. 

The change in the attitude of the 
British government from its iild posi- 
tion of insisting: upon having a voice in 
the construction of the proposed canal 
is the result of representations made to 
Lord Salisbury by Henry White, am- 
bassador of this governinent in Lon- 

H is the understanding of those who 
are awaie of the change in the attitude 
of the Kritlsh government that Lord 
Sali«l)ury will suggest through Sir 
Julian the advisqjjility of the I'nited 
States granting some concessions to 
his s-overnment. in return for the re- 
linquishment of the important rights 
possessed by Great Britain in the mat- 
ter of a canal across the isthmus, which 
for nearly fifty years have been recog- 
nized by this government in the treaty 
negotiated by John M. Clayton on th-* 
part of the Fnited States, and Lord 
Henry Lytton Bulwer on the part oif the 
British government. 

Just what concessions will be asked 
are not known, nor will they be until 
fi>!l and linal instructions are received 
by Sir Julian and communicated to 
Secretary Hay. 


Temper of Public Opinion Points to 
Such Action. ' 

London, Dec. 23. — There seems to be 
little doubt that Gi-eat Britain will 
agree to abrogate the Clayton-Buhver 
treaty. The temper of the cabinet and 
public opinion, which largely influence.^ 
the government's policy. p<.ints to such 
action, though no definite undcistand- 
ing with the I'nited States has yet been 

Great Britain desires that the Ni- 
caraguan canal be constructed, and Is 
willing that the United States should 
contn)l it if the United States guaran- 
tees its neutrality and safeguards Brit- 
ir.h interests. 

The reports from Washington that the 
British ambassador there. Sir Julian 
i'auncefote, has been instructed to 
negotiate the abrogation of the treaty 
are incorrect, though it is likely he will 
s( on re^'eive instructions to that effect. 

The impression here is that the Brit- 
ish foreign office and the Ignited States 
ambassador. Henry White, incidental 
to his visits to cabinet ministers, will 
arrange the Itasis of action. Mr. White 
spent pait (»f the week with tile marquis 
of Salisbury, at Hatfield house, and he 
goes today with his family to Spend 
Christmas with the duke of Devenson 
at Chatswcrth house. Derbyslsire, the 
ci imty seat of the duke, who is lor<l 
president of the cotincil. There Mr. 
White will meet another InMuential 
minister. Lord George Hamilton, the 
secretaiy of state for India. Anglo- 
.Vmerican questions naturally will be 


Believed In Washington They Will 
Soon Arrive. 

Washington. Dec. 23. — It is believed 
as little short of certain in the best in- 
formed official and diplomatic circles 
that negotiations will be opened at an 

early day toward so modifying the 
Clayton- Bulwer treaty as to meet the 
conditions of the present day concern- 
ing American construction and control 
of the Nicaraguan canal. But while 
recent events on both sides of the water 
have made this move obvious, the 
British ambassador. Sir Julian Paunce- 
fote, has not up to the present time re- 
ceived any instructions to open negoti- 
ations on this subject nor is there any 
intimation that instructions are about 
to be received. 

For this reason some surprise is ex- 
pressed in high displomatic quarters at 
seeming authoritative announcements 
that Sir Julian has such instructions in 
hand, or is about to receive them, and 
wfll execute them during holiday week 
by opening conferences with the state 
department. At the same time it is 
thought to be quite likely that the near 
future will bring forth negotiations of 
this character. 

The I'nited States representative at 
London, Henry White, is at present the 
guest of Lord Siftlisbury at Hatfield 
house and reliable reports have indi- 
cated that the visit might have some 
connection with the abrogation of the 
Clayton-Bulwer treaty. 

It will be recalled that the president's 
recent message, referring to American 
construction of the canal, was misin- 
terpreted by the English press to mean 
that the United States intended to dis- 
regard the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. This 
view was promptly disavowed by offi- 
cials here. Since then there has been 
about time for the official mall to reach 
London and this dotibtless permits a 
fuller clearing up of the erroneous im- 

Topeka, Dec. 23.— The Kansas South- 
western Railway company has filed ar- 
ticles of incorporation with the secre- 
tary of state. The capital stock of 
the company is $8,000,000. The direct- 
ors are Samuel Barker, Patrick M. 
Banker, John S. Hendrie and WilU^m

kansas City; W. K. Blackburn, of An- 
thony. Kans.. and James Glover, of 
Hluff City. Kans. The headquarters

Attitude off Insurgent Troops Is 
Giving Some Concern. 

Manilla, Dec. 2:'..— The United States, 
cruiser Boston and the gunboat Petrel 
have ari'ived here from Chinese ports. 
Th > steamer ITnion, which has re- 
turned here from Hollo with native and 
Spanish soldiers, has been refused a 
landing here. 

Private Tyler, Company L. of the Ne- 
braska regiment, who has been suffer- 
ing from typhoid fever, is dead. 

The steamer St. Paul has arrived 
here with the Christmas mail. The first 
American fiag was raii^ed over the Ma- 
late school house yesterday. It was 
sent by the university of Pennsylvania. 
The honor of raising the fiag was ac- 
corded to Father McKinnon, of Cali- 
fornia, in recognition of his services in 
reopening the schools. 

The native troops encamped in the 
suburbs are again causing anxiety. 
The attitude of an insurgent detach- 
ment at the Padu( han bridge on 
Wednesday was such that the Califor- 
nia, Idaho and Washington regiments 
were concentrated in light marching 
order, at short notice, at Paco, but 
trouble was avoided. 


May Be Necessary to Fur- 
lough the Force of Pine 



Washington, Dec. 23.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— The appropriation for esti- 
mating the Chippewa pine in Minnesota 
is so nearly exhausted that the force 
can only be employed about a month 
longer. The Indian appropriation bill 
carries an item of $10,000 for continuing 
the work during this fiscal year and 
Land Commissioner Hermann said to- 
day that he will be obliged to furlough 
the force unless the Indian bill becomes 
a law wlthing thirty days.

was sentenced to serve thirty days in 
Dedham jail today for contempt of 
court in permitting the publication in 
his paper of comments and editorials on 
the Getchell case, which in the court's 
opinion would have influenced the 
minds of the Jury had the paper con- 
taining the matter reached the court 
house before the case was submitted 
tor final consideration. 

Engineer Getchell. of the New York 
New Haven & Hartford railroad, was 
charged with manslaughter in connec- 
tion with a railroad collision last
